CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -
Total Quality Logistics
(TQL) will bring one of the newest crazes in running to the city of Cincinnati
this October with its first annual TQL Urban Race.
An urban race is
an obstacle-style run that aims to test runners' strength and stamina, as well
as their speed. It is held on city streets and provides dozens of grueling
hurdles to challenge competitors' physical limits.
"TQL Urban Race
will reflect, in many ways, the culture of our company – competitive,
challenging, daring, but ultimately very rewarding for those who are willing to
put in the hard work," said Jeff Montelisciani, TQL senior vice president of
TQL has partnered
with AGAR, a downtown Cincinnati creative agency, and The Flying Pig Marathon
to plan, produce, and execute the race, which will take place Saturday, October
12, 2013. The race will consist of a 5K course through the streets of downtown
Cincinnati, starting and ending in newly renovated Washington Park. The
official TQL Urban Race course will be announced later in the month.
"We have wanted
to bring an urban race to the city of Cincinnati, so we were very pleased when
TQL approached us with this concept. It is going to be another outstanding road
race that will attract runners of all ages and abilities to our city for the
challenge and the fun and we're proud to be a part of it," said Iris Simpson
Bush, Executive Director of the Flying Pig Marathon.
A portion of the
proceeds from TQL Urban Race will be donated to the Marvin Lewis Community Fund
and the Reds Community Fund.
"Our goal is to
make TQL Urban Race a flagship event for our company and the Cincinnati
community. This is our hometown, and it is our responsibility and privilege to give
back and make this a great place to work, live, and play," said Montelisciani.
The Marvin Lewis
and Reds Community Funds were chosen as beneficiaries of the event because of
their commitment to providing opportunities for at-risk youth in the community
through sports and education. Health and wellness, kids, and education are
focus areas of TQL's community service initiatives through its TQL Cares
"This is going to
be an outstanding community partnership and the funds raised will make a substantial
impact on the lives of tri-state children," said Barbara Dundee, executive
director of the Marvin Lewis Community Fund.
Community Fund is thrilled to be included in this exciting new event. The
charitable proceeds will benefit our baseball and softball programs aimed at
inner-city and underserved kids, including our Urban Youth Academy which begins
construction in Roselawn this summer," said Charley Frank, executive director
of the Reds Community Fund.
will be unveiled to the public throughout the summer, but TQL is offering a few
hints to competitors. "Think climbing over semi-trucks, hurdling over cement
barricades, and hauling pallets," said Montelisciani.
the TQL Urban Race begins today. Early bird registration costs only $45 and
includes an official race T-shirt, race medal, and admittance to post-race
"The race itself
is going to be challenging," said Montelisciani. "But it also is going to be a
lot of fun. This is going to be a party so it will appeal to runners,
spectators and volunteers alike."
