Running With The Buckeyes 5K

A huge thank you to all who contributed to our 7th annual Running With The Buckeyes 5K this past April. We are incredibly proud to say that we raised $1,500 for Advocates for Injured Athletes and $250 for the Kosta Karageorge Memorial Scholarship Fund. Our participant & volunteer turn out was phenomenal!

We are excited to once again host the Running With The Buckeyes 5K for its eighth year. It will be held on Sunday, April 23rd, 2017. The race will begin & end on the north end of the Oval on the Ohio State University’s campus. The 3.1 mile course will wind through our scenic campus, passed Mirror Lake, around the RPAC & Lincoln Tower Fields, through Coffey Road Park, down the Olentangy River Trail, passed the ‘Shoe, and back up to Thompson Library and around the Oval. 

Runners & walkers of all ages & experience are welcome to join Ohio State’s Athletic Training Club and student-athletes for our 5K. Proceeds will once again benefit Advocates for Injured Athletes, a non-profit organization dedicated to increasing sport safety for all student-athletes. Their organization aligns with our club’s values: to promote the presence of athletic trainers in all schools, educate athletes on signs and symptoms of potentially fatal conditions, and ultimately lessen the amount of injuries and fatalities in sports. To hear their story, or learn more about their organization, please visit their website (

The cost for students is $25 and for non-students is $30. Please note that after Sunday, April 9th, the price will increase $5 for everyone. Every participant will receive a goodie bag, which includes a t-shirt and entry to our race-day raffle. Our raffle will feature prizes such as signed OSU memorabilia and gift cards to local businesses. All proceeds from the raffle will be donated to the Kosta Karageorge Memorial Scholarship Fund. This is an OSU Athletics scholarship in honor of the late wrestler & football player, whose untimely death left a profound impact on the members of OSU’s Athletic department, including the Athletic Training staff & students. 
Please join us in creating another successful race to support Advocates for Injured Athletes & our Athletic Training Club! We hope to see you on April 23rd.
