Why run/walk/bike 1,1187.87 miles?

Why not? Let's be real, you've probably made worse choices in your life than this one. Think on the bright side, on average a person burns 100 calories every mile, that means you're gonna burn 112,000 calories on this challenge. If you're like us, that translates to about 373 donuts you can consume at no additional charge to your midsection. A donut a day + 8 extra for when you're craving a 2nd!

Countdown to log 1,118.87 miles!

A message from the race director

That crazy looking man is yours truly! Taken a few hours into a 12 hour run, a run which at the time seemed like a good idea, just like you think about signing up for this challenge. Many times during that run I questioned why/what I was doing, just as you will during this journey over the next year. But when you finish you'll know exactly why you embarked upon that journey, just as I had after completing my 12 hour journey!

Good luck and happy running!

Who is putting on this event?

These days there are a lot of shady companies in this industry and they intentionally try to hide who is producing the event. That's not how we roll! The Buckeye State Challenge is proudly produced by the Advanced Running Project, a veteran owned small business based just outside of Dayton, Ohio! Producing running events is our livelihood and thus we are so thankful for your support!
