May 26 - 27th Annual Lou Cox 5k

loucox2014 

Jim Nichols summed it up best when describing Lou Cox ... "Quite simply the father of running in the Dayton, Ohio area"
His fitness programs at the Central YMCA and later at the Kettering Medical Center formed the foundation upon which the Dayton running boom would be built. He was a man of foresight and a great inspirational leader. Thousands of area citizens owe their present state of health and well-being to this man.

COURSE: 
The Lou Cox Memorial 5K is one of the fastest 5K's in the Midwest! Starting on Edwin C. Moses Blvd. in Dayton, OH, the race heads north to Stewart St. Here, runners will cross over the Great Miami River and then turn south on Patterson Blvd. Runners will run to the turnaround spot and then return to Stewart St. via the paralleling bike path. After crossing back over the river, the runners will run back to Welcome Stadium before running 350 meters on the track to the finish line. The Lou Cox Memorial 5K has a slight elevation loss, as the finish line on the track sits lower than the start line on Edwin C. Moses Blvd. There is no noticeable elevation change until a downhill into the parking lot at 2.5 miles.
