Walkers & Strollers
All walkers and participants with strollers must start in corrals G & H.
Remarkable Experience Tip: Take your time crossing the Start Line (and Finish Line)! The Ohio State 4 Miler is chip timed, so your start time does not begin until you cross the Start Line. This is a four-mile event with over 10,000 participants finishing in one of the coolest venues in the country. Why rush the experience?
The Brutus Bolt Kids Race will start at 11:30 a.m. outside of Ohio Stadium and “Finish On The 50" inside the stadium. The Brutus Bolt Kids Race is approximately a half-mile and one parent can walk or run with each registered participant.
