With the goal of raising $60,000 for charities and organizations and hosting over 800 participants, the O’Bleness Health System Race for a Reason is becoming the largest charity-based race event Athens has ever seen. [GET REGISTERED]

The O’Bleness Health System Race for a Reason offers three distinct events:

33rd OU HCOM Medicine Run 5K presented by Diagnostic Hybrids: A traditional 5K run that will start adjacent to the triathlon transition area in Parking Lot #134. This course winds through scenic Emeriti Park and the Ohio University campus before intersecting with the Hocking Adena Bikeway. Competitors will enjoy views of the Hocking River and Ohio University Golf Course before finishing at TailGreat Park across from the Ohio University Convocation Center.  [GET REGISTERED]

ROCKY Military Mud Run powered by OU ROTC: A 4.5 mile non-traditional run also starts adjacent to the triathlon transition area in Parking Lot #134. Runners will cross the Hocking River over the Richland Avenue Bridge, pass through the Richland Avenue Park, and travel down Diary Barn Lane before heading up to the ROTC Challenge course in the Ridges. Competitors will encounter obstacles throughout the course before heading down to a slip-n-slide finish line at TailGreat Park.  [GET REGISTERED]

Athletes in Action Triathlon & Duathlon: A short sprint format (Triathlon: 500 meter Swim, 25k Bike, 5k Run: Duathlon 5k-Run, 25k-Bike, 5k-Run) that begins at the Ohio University Aquatic Center for the triathlon and in the transition area for the Duathlon. The bike route takes competitors out of town on a challenging course before returning to campus to complete a 5k run with a finish at TailGreat Park. Participants can choose to race alone, or team up with friends, family, or co-workers and enter as a three-person relay.  [GET REGISTERED]

American Triple-T Singlet & Hat Revealed

AmericanTriple-T_poweredbySOMCThe much anticipated 2014 design of the American Triple-T singlet and its matching cycling hat have been officially revealed by the HFP designers.  This singlet is one of the unique elements that makes the American Triple-T so special. All participants are required to wear the singlet during all 4 events (the matching hat is encouraged but not mandatory). There is something really intimate and unexplainable (unless you’re there) with 500+ participants struggling on the course and basically all looking the same…in this case, misery certainly loves company 😉
