Aid stations will include water and hot chocolate as the participants cheer and jeer each other on their respective routes.

Those ‘Dotting the i’ will have a photo finish as they put on a Sousaphone to cap off their achievement. Finishers of both courses will receive a finisher medal provided by Buckeye Broadband.

Bring the kids as this is a family-friendly event. Children will be given a “Dot-to-Dot the i” or “Dot-to-Block the M” to follow the route while walking with family.

Awards will be given for the first male and female finishers from each course as well as most-spirited fan for each team.

All preregistered participants will receive a long-sleeved shirt, finisher medal, and be treated to an after-party for the race.  The after party will also serve as a pre-party for The Game as Ohio State and Michigan face off for one of the country’s best rivalries.
