Attention Athletes! The winter chill has finally set in. By now, most Ohioans are probably bundled up, content on staying warm and dry this winter. But for those willing (some say crazy) enough to brave the elements, or if you’re just looking for a goal to keep you on track with your diet during the holiday season, AltOhio’s got your wish list.

Whether you’re a full-time pro, or just getting into the swing of things, these events offer a wide variety of competition for every age and level of athletic ability.
