About The Run With Fire
The Run With Fire Half Marathon in Newark, Ohio is a great race for anyone looking to experience the beauty of Ohio’s countryside. The route takes runners around a scenic 13-mile loop through the rolling hills and fields of rural Licking County. Along the way you can take in views of historic farms and countryside estates while enjoying springtime temperatures ranging from mid 40s to mid 60s.
The course is relatively flat with only a few gradual inclines, making it ideal for both experienced and novice runners alike. As an added bonus most of the course takes place on well maintained roads with light traffic so there’s no need to worry about dodging cars or pedestrians during your run!
One thing that really stands out about this half marathon is its large crowds – as many as 5,000 people have been known to come out every year. This means plenty of spectators cheering you on throughout your journey and lots of motivation when those last few miles start getting tough! There are also plenty of aid stations along the way offering water, energy snacks, electrolytes, medical attention if needed – all staffed by friendly volunteers who are always happy to help out whenever possible.
Additionally this event offers a variety awards categories like ‘Top Male/Female Finisher’ ‘Best Outfit Award’ etc., giving participants an extra incentive to push themselves beyond their limits. Post-race there will be live music performances as well as food vendors where you can refuel after your big accomplishment!
