A Country Mile, the motley terrain race (MTR), is a venture to encourage the Ohio and surrounding running communities to ground athletes’ running adventures in their local communities, and encourage the supporting of local businesses. A Country Mile will be hosted north of Columbus, in Centerburg, Ohio. The race will take place on 3 back roads (Dirt, Gravel, Pavement), through farmland and single track trails. The race will be hopeful in encouraging participants to branch out, and try different types of terrain when training.

More About The Charities
Big Walnut Friends Who Share

For Those Who Would | By Those Who Can
For Those Who Would is a certified 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity based out of Richmond, KY with a mission to support individuals prevented from participating in athletic and physical recreational activities due to debilitating injuries or chronic diseases. We want to make a positive and meaningful impact on the lives of those individuals and to become the charity of choice for adventure and endurance athletes. For Those Who Would also supports endurance and adventure athletes by providing a mechanism through which they can raise money for their own personal cause that furthers the foundation’s mission.
But what are we really about?
For Those Who Would is about the stories of athletes who want to do “more than just compete”. It is about the stories of those who would love to be able to do what we do, but can’t due to injury or disease. It is about competing in honor of that special disadvantaged individual in your life. For Those Who Would was established so that the passion of obstacle racing and adventure athletes could be channeled into “making MEANINGFUL IMPACT” on the lives of others. This is personal and we want to help make that happen.
For Those Who Would is truly about serving others. There are no paid employees and which helps keep administrative costs as low as possible so that funds go to those who need it.
