Jess 's thoughts:

One Lucky Buckeye is a race that Ohio State's Ross Heart Hospital puts on every year with three different route options – 2, 4, or 8 miles. The routes take you through the streets of Grandview Heights, 5xNW, and Upper Arlington. It's also a fun race because it focuses on women's heart health, so all of the participants are women except for "one lucky Buckeye" (male) who gets selected to run the 8-miler.

I liked that this race is relatively small (~750 participants this year, I think the MC said), cheap ($25 for the 4-miler when I signed up), and well coordinated on the day of. I didn't think that their website was very useful (for example, I had a hard time finding on the website when the race actually started), and I think that their coordination with social media wasn't that great. I would definitely run this race again in the future, but it might be a better race for someone who has patience to deal with something a little less organized than most "big" races these days.
