1 Day for the K.I.A. 12-Hour Ultramarathon

Date: Saturday, April 2, 2022, 8 a.m. - 8 p.m.

Location: The Oval

Cost: Free

Link: https://www.1dayforthekia.org/12hr-run

Admission: Admission costs vary! Please check out our website!

Our primary fundraiser for the Living Legacy Scholarship is the 1 Day for the K.I.A. 12-Hour Endurance Run. Held in the spring each year, it is a 12-Hour Endurance Run in that runners have exactly 12 hours to cover as many miles as they can. As a tribute to the 920+ OSU alumni and others who have made the ultimate sacrifice, we have previously outlined our course with nearly 1,000 remembrance icons, each with the name of a fallen service member.

Runners have exactly 12 hours to cover as many miles as they can. They are allowed to sleep, eat, leave and come back, and even flat out stop running whenever they want to - whatever they want to do get the furthest mileage possible. Due to the rules and structure of this type of run, it simply tests one thing: How far can you push yourself?

WHY?

  • To commemorate the fallen families tied to The Ohio State University, raise awareness for those affected by war, and raise money for The Living Legacy Scholarship.

  • April 2nd - Spring 2022
