    The Run for Blue Blazes has been cancelled due to the continuing challenges posed by the COVID-19 virus and the latest available guidance offered by Ohio Governor DeWine’s office, CDC and ODH guidelines.

    Join us in 2021 for the 7th annual Run for Blue Blazes - Buckeye Trail Run. Again this year there will be four options for a distance right for you: Half Marathon, 10K, 5K run and a 10 Buckeye Trail Hike.  All events are on the Buckeye Trail in the Wayne National Forest.  The run course for all distances are out and back all on the Buckeye Trail. The hike will be start at the North Country Trailhead with a 10 hike back to the Buckeye Trail Association office in Shawnee.  Most of the course is on single track trail, with some challenging and hilly conditions, and there is some sections is on roads.  The half marathon of over a 1,000 feet of elevation gain and the full marathon has just over 2050 feet of elevation change. The start and finish of this event is in downtown Shawnee, Ohio, near the Buckeye Trail Association office, 127B W. Main Street.

    At 8:00AM, all participants in the 10 mile hike will leave from Shawnee to head out to the NCT trailhead for the start of the 10 mile hike.  The Half Marathon race will start at 9:00AM, followed by both the 5K and 10K at 9:15AM.  Participants in the 5K, 10K and Half Marathon will be chip timed, with a timing point on the half marathon at the turnaround.

    After the race participants can enjoy post race food and there is an option to purchase food from local food truck vendors.

    Awards will be given to the top overall male and female finishers in each of the 3 races.  All participant and age group results will be posted with the online results. Age groups: 19 and under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59 and 60 and over race results only.

For the love of all that is good and moisture wicking...

Though we try to be accurate and on top of things... Race details can change when we aren't lookin. And once in a while we simply make a mistake.

ALWAYS visit the race's website for the most complete and accurate race information.
