Short review

About this Race

Whether you're getting ready for that Fall full or half marathon or looking to test your summer training in a 5K, the Big Bad Wolfe Run is for you. We have race options of 5K, 10 miles, and 20 miles. Join us on September 26th for something great, the Big Bad Wolfe Run. This race is all on the paved asphalt Alum Creek Trail, it is not a trail run.

We're going to deliver great swag, finisher medals for everyone, and a fun time. You're going to deliver the memories. Band together with the rest of the villagers and come run with us! 

As you take part in the Big Bad Wolfe Run, you'll be joining in the tradition of keeping the big bad wolf at bay. Just as the folks of Central Ohio have done for generations, kick off your Fall by wearing red and hitting the paths in memory of Little Red.

2021 Event Option and Status

The 2021 plan for the Big Bad Wolfe Run is to host both an in-person event at Wolfe Park and a virtual event for those who aren't able or choose not to attend the in-person event.
