Escape from The Real Shawshank State Prison on August 17, 2019 at The Ohio State Reformatory. This 7k running race will feature five filming locations in The Shawshank Redemption and will conclude with a tour of The Ohio State Reformatory where you can see the cell blocks, the Warden’s office, desk and safe, Parole Board room, Brooks’ hotel room and even the replica carving on the ceiling that reads, “Brooks was here. So was Red” are on display. Andy Dufresne’s actual escape tunnel that was used for filming is even on display!

The event will take place on closed to traffic city streets from the Reformatory to The Carousel district in Downtown Mansfield. All runners will also be permitted to ride The Richland Carrousel during the run. The course will offer rolling hills in a commercial area and a final Road to Redemption hill back to The Reformatory.  There will be four on course water stops. We will be utilizing electronic chip timing. A new custom finisher medal is being designed for this year’s event.  The event is open to runners, walkers and is family friendly.
