"March 12, 2020

At Youngstown Road Runners the welfare of our running community is always our top priority. Due to the rapidly spreading coronavirus (COVID-19) reaching pandemic designation the Mill Creek Distance Classic will be deferred until next year.

The Youngstown Road Runners took this decision very seriously. Up until this morning we were planning to proceed as planned, however with the seriousness of the situation and limited supplies like bottled water we have made the tough decision to postpone the race until 2021.

Please know that all registered participants are still registered for the event that now will take place March 2021. As soon as we have the date finalized we will communicate that to all of you.

Thank you for understanding our need to postpone.

Michelle Hirschl, President

Youngstown Road Runners"


You are invited to run or walk with us.  As a serious runner, those just starting to run or those who would like to start running, we will not leave you behind. We have runners of all ages and paces. We have Certified Coaches to help you. Join us for a club run!  You do not need to be a member to run with us. We run in one of Ohio’s most beautiful parks. Mill Creek MetroParks was established in 1893 as the first municipal park in Ohio. The terrain is varied, ranging from the flat hike and bike trail to the challenging Old Mill area for those who love hills.  The park also has 15 miles of trails. The roads and trails run along picturesque Mill Creek Park and around lake Glacier, Cohasset and Newport.
