Here’s an event that I want to bring to your attention, The Ridiculous Extreme Suburban Excursion event RESE for short, is scheduled for Saturday morning, August 31st at 10:00 am. It’s the equivalent of a Warrior Race / Mud Run. If you’re in shape, or even think you’re in shape, this could be an interesting challenge for you. I’m neither, and live in Buffalo, not Columbus, so I come up empty all the way around. You may be more fortunate than I am.
As you’ve noticed, this is the morning of the Buckeyes’ opening game hosting the University of Buffalo. If you can’t make it to the game for whatever reason, don’t worry. After the event there will be tailgating with brats, burgers and beer for you Buckeyes. It’s important to get rehydrated and nourished.
The charity component, because you knew there’d be one, is that portion of proceeds go towards the Dresden Sister City Marathon exchange. The German’s send five runners in exchange for five runners from Columbus. These five runners take part in the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Marathon which in turn helps raise fund for the hospital and associated child welfare programs.
The number to call to register is (614) 336-2582. Here are links to flier and poster regarding the event.
This is also listed on the Ohio State ‘Your Plan for Health’ website.
Full disclosure: my nephew is organizing this, so you loyal readers out there; please do the right thing and take the opportunity to participate to support the Dresden Sister City Exchange.
