List: The best cities in the US for runners

CINCINNATI — Two days. Two cities. 131 miles. One race for a cause.

The American Cancer Society’s C2C Relay Run, a two-day, eight-person relay team race, criss-crosses southwest Ohio this weekend.

Over 160 people will arrive at Yeatman’s Cove in Cincinnati Saturday afternoon, the finish line for the race which benefits cancer resources that started at Genoa Park in Columbus Friday.

Runners have dashed through city streets, country roads and trails on a 24-leg journey to reach Cincinnati, and each relay team member runs an average of 17 miles.

The proceeds from the race benefit cancer patients and survivors. So far, the 2019 C2C Relay Run has raised more than $125,000.

The runners are expected to arrive between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Teams will gather later tonight at the statue of Cincinnatus.
