As a courtesy to our neighbor, The Muirfield Village Golf Club/The Memorial Tournament, the Muirfield Association, Inc. is passing along this information regarding the golf club’s 2016 FORE! MILER Road Race.
Dear Muirfield Residents,
We are excited to inform you that the Memorial Tournament, presented by Nationwide will once again host the FORE! Miler presented by OhioHealth. This one of a kind community focused event was a tremendous success in 2015 and will once again feature a 4-mile road race that starts and ends at Muirfield Village Golf Club and includes Memorial Drive, Avery Road, Brand Road, Muirfield Drive and Kinross Court. After the race, runners and walkers, together with members of the Dublin community, are invited to enjoy a free Post-Race Party at the Golden Bear Club, an enclosed, climate-controlled venue located between the fairway at Hole No. 10 and the green at No. 14 at Muirfield Village Golf Club.
The FORE! Miler presented by OhioHealth will begin at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 26. Registration is now open and all Dublin residents, as well as City employees, receive a $5 discount on race fees. Standard fees are $45 per person through March 15, 2016; $50 per person from March 16 through May 1; and $55 per person starting May 2 until sold out. All proceeds from the FORE! Miler benefit Nationwide Children’s Hospital. The inaugural race in 2015 raised $40,000 for Nationwide Children’s.
Please note that the Memorial Tournament is committed to providing all Dublin residents with the best possible race experience. The Tournament is applying the knowledge it gained from last year’s inaugural event to improving all race communications and operations. Chief among those efforts is the Memorial’s commitment to easing traffic congestion surrounding the race. For example, a new parking plan has been instituted for the 2016 FORE! Miler that will allow participants to be ushered in and out of designated race parking areas at a faster pace.
The Memorial Tournament would like to thank you in advance for your support of the FORE! Miler presented by OhioHealth. Together we can continue to build an event that the entire community can be proud of, and one that annually raises significant dollars for Nationwide Children’s Hospital.
