738 people from all over the Tristate participated in the UC Blue Ash Dash 5K Run/Walk for Scholarships, hosted by UC Blue Ash College on Saturday, October 10.

The event raised $53,000, with all proceeds benefiting scholarships for deserving students.  This was the 3rd annual UC Blue Ash Dash 5K.  Combined with the past two events, the college has now raised more than $100,000 for student scholarships.  The number of participants and money raised this year both set new records for the event.

Participants enjoyed the cool, crisp and sunny weather as they traveled the course through the UC Blue Ash campus and out onto Plainfield Road in Blue Ash, before turning back and finishing on the college campus.

The overall winner in the chip-timed race was Tony O’Connor, a UC Blue Ash student, with a time of 17-minutes-28-seconds.  In the women’s division, 15-year-old Abby Landers from Anderson High School came in first with a time of 20-minutes-47 seconds.
