_ The 2022 1 Day for the K.I.A. 12-Hour Ultramarathon:
1 Day for the K.I.A. Spring 2022 12-Hour Ultramarathon
April 2, 2022 8am-8pm
Our primary fundraiser for the Living Legacy Scholarship is the 1 Day for the K.I.A. 12-Hour Endurance Run. Held in the spring each year, it is a 12-Hour Endurance Run in that runners have exactly 12 hours to cover as many miles as they can. As a tribute to the 920+ OSU alumni and others who have made the ultimate sacrifice, we have previously outlined our course with nearly 1,000 remembrance icons, each with the name of a fallen service member.
Runners have exactly 12 hours to cover as many miles as they can. They are allowed to sleep, eat, leave and come back, and even flat out stop running whenever they want to - whatever they want to do get the furthest mileage possible. Due to the rules and structure of this type of run, it simply tests one thing: How far can you push yourself?

Sponsored Runners: One of our premier fundraising methods is our Sponsored Runners. Before the run, these runners will secure "sponsorships" from friends, family, and anyone who may want to contribute to the cause. By "sponsoring" a runner, these donors are agreeing to donate a specified amount per mile that their runner covers in the 12 hours. With this setup, each literal step forward made by our Sponsored Runners is symbolic of the pain they are willing to endure and their desire to bring positive change upon our deserving families through the Living Legacy Scholarship.
*If you register as a sponsored runner or team, you will need to become a fundraiser when you go through the registration process*
