PRINTABLE ENTRY BLANK

South Lebanon is the home of the Autumn Blast Half Marathon.  The half marathon starts and finishes in Rogers Park in the heart of South Lebanon.  The course is mostly flat (see elevation map, left) with its lone hill about 1/3 into the course.  The first portion of the race is on rural roads with the finish stretch along the Little Miami River.

Special thanks to the Village of S. Lebanon.  The Village is providing us with a great start and finish, closing some roads for our start and is welcoming us to their community.

Where is South Lebanon?   Closer than you think!   Take the 71 freeway north to the Rt. 48 exit (just north of King's Island).  Go south a half mile and turn left at the traffic light after Lowe's.  You're there!

Welcome to the Autumn Blast Half Marathon in South Lebanon!

NO FRILLS RACING

 

The Autumn Blast Half Marathon will provide you with a great race experience with plenty of volunteers, aid stations, portapotties, ice, gatorade and whatever else is needed.  Our shirts, should you choose to order one, are the highest quality shirts that are sized individually for men and women.  After finishing, get a huge, heavy Finisher's Medal to commemorate your run.

 

Our resources are spent ensuring you have a top quality racing experience.

 

No Frills racing means you don't have pay huge bucks for an expo, a goody bag full of paper, a crowded course and meal of stale and cold food after the race.  Check out our entry fees, way, way less than anybody else!

 

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT OUR TSHIRT POLICY

Not everybody wants a Tshirt.  Why pay for a Tshirt if you don't want one?  When you enter the Loveland Half Marathon, you do not automatically get a Tshirt with your entry.  You must purchase the Tshirt separately. We are passing the savings on to you by only supplying shirts to those that want them. 

Shirts must be ordered on or before October 8th to receive it at Packet Pick up.

We do order extra shirts and sometimes have enough for those who either failed to order one or entered after October 10.  Extra shirts will be available for sale at the finish line on race day.

WALK DIVISION

The Autumn Blast Half Marathon is a walk friendly race.   Course cut off times of 4 hours (20 minutes per mile) leave plenty of time for all walkers and runners to complete the course. 

The Walk Division is for walkers only.  (Note if you enter the run division of the Loveland Half Marathon you may walk or run or any combination thereof).  If you are unsure whether you are a walker then you should enter the Half Marathon so that you have the option of running should you wish to do so.

If you enter the Walk division of the Loveland Half Marathon you will be scored as a walker and agree that you will complete the Loveland Half Marathon by walking.  Running any portion of the race is prohibited. 

Awards will be given out in the Walk Division.

Course cut off time are 20 minutes a mile.  You must make progress through the course faster than 20 minutes a mile.  That means you must go through the first mile faster than 20 minutes, the second mile faster than 40 minutes and so on.

TIMEKEEPING

The IPICO SportsTag system will be used to time the race.  Tags are to be attached to your left shoe via the supplied tie or laced into your shoe with your shoelace.  The tags are to be returned at the finish line following the race.

There will be timing mat at the turnarounds to insure course integrity.  The mat will be there to make sure everybody goes to the turnaround before returning.

Results will be posted on this website the day of the race. 

AWARDS

Age Group awards will be given in 5 year age divisions for Half Marathon Run and 10 year age divisions for the Half Marathon Walk.

Divisional (age group) awards are based on TAG (chip start) time.

2017 COMP ENTRIES FOR WINNERS!

 

Any athlete who breaks the course record will win a comp entry for themselves and 3 of their friends at the 2017 Rocketman (7/4/17 AND the 2017 Autumn Blast Half Marathon.  Overall winners (unless you break the course record then you get the higher prize), Masters (40+) and Grand Masters (60+) all win comp entries to the 2017 Rocket Man and Autumn Blast Half Marathon.  This is for the Half Marathon Run Only. Note that since this is a new course, winners will be course record holders!


Finisher awards will go to all runners who complete the course in under 4:20 and all walkers who complete the course in under 4:20 hours. 

COURSE CLOSURE

We will be doing a rolling closure based on time.  You must maintain a pace of 20 minutes a mile.  If you are not on a 20 minutes a mile pace and you wish to continue you will do so without support.  No course support will be provided to those participants slower than 20 minutes a mile.

IPODS AND AUDIO DEVICES

The Autumn Blast Half Marathon discourages the use of personal music devices.  This is especially true as a portion of our course is on the Little Miami Bike Trail.  Not only are they a danger to the athlete wearing them but they are also dangerous to those around that athlete.  If wearing an audio device results in you being unable to hear verbal instructions or commands, or approaching vehicles or course marshals on bicycles, you may be asked to relinquish the device or cease running.  That being said, the Autumn Blast Half Marathon recognizes the futility of trying to prevent personal music devices and will not outright ban them.  Please take responsibility and use good judgment if you opt to wear an audio device. 

ENTRY FEES

Entry fees are non-refundable and non-transferable. Once we accept your entry, you will not receive a refund if you cannot participate. You may not give or sell your number to anyone else.  Due to the extraordinary cost of putting on the half marathon, and per similar policies at all running races, this policy will apply to all entrants and is in effect whether you are injured, have an unexpected family/business emergency, have a medical emergency, etc. There are no exceptions.

PARKING

Please see the parking map (posted soon).  Obviously the better parking will be available to those who arrive early.  Please review the parking map for parking options.  If you are arriving late, it would be best to choose a parking area that is a little farther from the starting line.

T-SHIRT/REFUND POLICY

Entry fees are non-refundable and non-transferable. Once we accept your entry, you will not receive a refund if you cannot participate. You may not give or sell your number to anyone else.  Due to the extraordinary cost of putting on the half marathon, and per similar policies at all running races, this policy will apply to all entrants and is in effect whether you are injured, have an unexpected family/business emergency, have a medical emergency, etc. There are no exceptions.
