The Blue Circle Run 5k/10k


We walk and run to raise awareness for ALL types of diabetes.
The Blue Circle Run benefits Diabetes Dayton, a local non-profit whose programs benefit those affected by all types of diabetes in the Greater Dayton area. Programs include free education classes, diabetes supply assistance for the uninsured, wellness series, and camp for children living with diabetes. All proceeds stay right here in Dayton!

The Blue Circle is the universal symbol for diabetes, established by the UN in 2006.

The Blue Circle Run
Join us in 2020 for awesome finisher medals for the first 150 registrants, a long sleeve shirt, and lots of fun! This 5K/10K/walk benefits Diabetes Dayton. The blue circle is the universal symbol for Diabetes and this race’s proceeds will benefit those affected by all types of Diabetes.

Your safety is important and we've been working for weeks to get an updated plan approved by the Public Health - Dayton and Montgomery County. It goes without saying that this race will not be your typical race, but an opportunity to resume an activity you enjoy. COVID-19 has certainly changed how we do a lot of things, and road races have been impacted. We respect your decision to participate in person or not, so we'll offer a virtual option in addition to the live race. Specific guidelines for in-person racing can be found on the race registration page.
