Northeast Ohio harbors some of the country's most beautiful trails and also hosts runners with big hearts who care about their community. Several race directors with a similar vision have come together to form a partnership to provide non-profit first rate low cost or free trail racing experiences, while organizing efforts giving back to our communities in need.
Running Forward and Giving Back is a non-profit 501c3 organization consisting of multiple NE Ohio trail races which share a mission to support runners, our precious parks, and local individuals or small organizations who require a helping hand.
