What is the Ohio State 4 Miler and how does it work?

The Virtual Ohio State 4 Miler is your chance to participate in the Ohio State 4 Miler if you cannot make it to Ohio Stadium on Oct. 24, 2021 or are not yet ready to run with a big crowd.

The rules for the Ohio State 4 Miler are simple. Sign up for the event and run your four miles anywhere at anytime between Saturday, Oct. 23 and Monday, Oct. 25. Then upload your results and download your Finisher's Certificate (see below for more information).

Virtual Ohio State 4 Miler participants receive the same shirt, medal and race bib as those in the in=person Ohio State 4 Miler.

How / When do I get my packet?

All Virtual Ohio State 4 Miler packets will be mailed the week of Oct. 11 to the address provided during registration. Be sure to register before October 9 to ensure your packet reaches you in time for the Virtual Ohio State 4 Miler on October 23-25, 2021. Participants who register after October 9 will still be mailed a packet, but it may arrive after October 24.

What do I do when I finish my run / walk?

Once you have finished your virtual run you can log in to your EnMotive account beginning October 23 and log your results. After you have logged your results you will be able to upload photos to share your experience with other runners and view and download your Finisher's Certificate. Can't finish your run by October 25? That's okay! Runners can log their results and download a Finisher's Certificate through November 24. Check out how you stack up against other runners by viewing the race results.

How do I log my results & get my Finisher's Certificate?

The race will be available for upload of results and photos Oct 22-Nov. 24, 2021.

  1. Visit the results page.
  2. Search for your name and click it
  3. Click ‘Submit Results’ and submit your time
  4. Once your time is submitted, click ‘View Post-Race Experience’ to go back to your personal results page to download your finisher certificate and upload photos

Do I need to submit results to get a medal?

No. Your medal will be mailed to you with your packet. However, once once you complete your run, you can Log Your Results and complete other post-race experience actions, like download your personalized Finisher's Certificate, see how you rank on the leaderboard of other participants, and upload your photos, crop and add filters, and add a Virtual Ohio State 4 Miler overlay to share on social and show off your well-earned medal! (Posting your results and uploading photos is optional).
