2016 was our 40th Annual race. The event was sponsored by Lake Health. In 2016 year we had 874 participants. It was a cloudy and 70 degrees. We had our Fifth Annual kid run, which was a again a hit. The race started in 1977 with 437 entrants and had the largest turnout in 1991 with 1696 runners . The course is one of the main reasons for the Jog's notoriety. It is generally considered to be flat, fast and accurate. National age-group, as well as hundreds of personal records, have been set on its friendly confines. 

Conversely the Jog can be one tough lady and it is prudent to accord the course the respect she deserves.

Proceeds from the race will be donated to The News-Herald's Newspaper in Education program throughout Lake,Geauga,Ashtabula and portions of Cuyahoga counties. 
Your donation provides newspapers for the classrooms

Athlete Updates

Have you ever said, "If a marathon was only 20 miles, I'd do great!"? Well, this isn't a marathon, but it is 20 miles of mostly downhill running, about 700 feet of elevation drop. Whether you're training for your spring marathon, or just looking to do a long distance race, this race is for you! 

This is a point-to-point race. Runners will park at Fairport Harbor Beach and be bused to Chardon, OH for the start of the 20 mile race. Runners that park in Chardon WILL NOT be bused back after the race. 

There is also a 10 Mile version that starts in Concord, OH, near the 10 Mile mark of the 20 Mile Drop. These runners will also be bused to their starting location.
