The Scio Scramble is one of the oldest road races in the Ohio Valley dating back to the early 80s. The annual 5k road race serves as the kickoff to the long running Scio Street Fair now known as the Scio Summer Fest on August 9, 2023 with the kids 1 mile fun run starting at 6:15 pm, Family fun run/walk at 6:15 pm, and the 5k following at 7:00 pm. It's an out and back course on city streets and our local rails to trails running path. This year marks the first year with the new race course. It will begin beside the lot next to the firehouse where registration takes place and ends below the Scio Branch Library. The course is a paved flat course looping around a neighborhood before going onto the scenic paved trail. While on the trail you will see local foliage and even cross a covered bridge. Every runner/walker receive a t-shirt and goody bag.
We will have water twice on the course (out and back) and plenty of volunteers along the course.
New this year is a one mile family fun run/walk. Anybody is welcome to walk or run, it will be timed but no awards will be given for the one mile family walk/run.
After the conclusion of the 5k awards will be given at the firehouse with drinks, door prizes and ice-cream. There are plenty of restrooms and showers available at the firehouse for runners and walkers.
With the addition of the new mile walk/run we have changed our award structure slightly. Please see the individual races for award information.
