For the safety of our participants, volunteers, spectators, vendors and staff we have made the decision to turn this year's annual event VIRTUAL! You will still receive the amazing service and experience you've come to expect with our race. Run or Walk anytime between July 1-14.

Every participate will receive:

  • A soft cotton patriotic tee delivered or shipped to your house if you register before July 7. (Participants registering after July 7 will receive their shirt after July 14)
  • An American flag to plant in a designated area in the newly opened Rose Run Park
  • A state of the art app to download that will track your distance, record your time and let you instantly upload your time to the results page
  • Handpicked Spotify playlists available to download for your race
  • One-of-a-kind photo opportunities throughout Rose Run Park - We are excited to share that past artist-in-residence Wil Wong Yee and Adam Kolp will be painting patriotic murals that will be displayed in the park for our families to “jump into” and become part of the art after completing the race.

The New Albany Symphony Orchestra (NASO) is a community orchestra bringing music to life in New Albany, Ohio, and proud to call the Jeanne B. McCoy Community Center for the Arts home. Founded in 2007 by New Albany resident and violist Heather Garner and founding conductor Luis Biava, the New Albany Symphony Orchestra is comprised of over 120 community, student, and professional musicians from all over the Columbus metro area. NASO was designed by its founders to be a true community orchestra, in which a unique model of talented students, professional mentors and community musicians would combine and work together on one stage.  NASO’s annual four-concert-series provides high level performances for our audiences and free educational outreach in our schools.  Our annual student concerto competition attracts students from across the state of Ohio and our nationally recognized guest artists position New Albany on the map as a center for artistic excellence.  Some of our past guest artists include Grammy award winning cellist David Finckel, world-class pianist Jon Kimura Parker, Pulitzer Prize nominee Augusta Read Thomas, and one of the top 5 violinists in the world – superstar Hilary Hahn.
