Clendening Half Marathon is the first of the Lakes Series races. The race Will start at Fort Steuben Scout Reservation. You will start the race with about 1.5 miles down the back roads and then shoot off into the woods for 10 miles of beautiful single track trail around the Brushy Fork Bay portion of Clendening Lake. The trail will lead you back out on the road (about 1.5 mile from where you went in) where you will head back to the finish!
We are also in a partnership with both the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District and The Buckeye Trail Association for these race series!!
The Muskingum River Watershed, which covers more than 8,000 square miles and drains into the Muskingum River, is the largest wholly contained watershed in the state of Ohio, covering about 20 percent of the state. The Muskingum River – which is formed by the confluence of the Tuscarawas and Walhonding rivers at Coshocton, OH – empties into the Ohio River at Marietta.
The system of reservoirs and dams in the watershed offers flood reduction and water conservation benefits to the region’s property owners and residents. The Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District (MWCD), a political subdivision of the State of Ohio, was responsible for the development of the reservoirs and dams. Today the MWCD is dedicated to providing the benefits of flood reduction, water conservation and recreational opportunities in the Muskingum River Watershed.

The purpose of the Buckeye Trail Association is to promote the construction, maintenance, and use of a state-wide trail system, within the State of Ohio, to be supplemented with side trails, campsites, and other facilities, so as to render accessible some of the historical and beauty spots of the Buckeye State. The trail shall be primarily a footpath, but certain portions may be designated for use by horsemen and/or other non-motorized users. Said corporation is organized and shall be operated exclusively for charitable, educational, and scientific purposes co-extensive with the purposes set forth in Section 501c(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 (or the corresponding provision of any future United States Internal Revenue Law) including for such purposes the making of distributions to organizations that qualify as exempt organizations under said Section.
The Buckeye Trail Association is a large, strong body of volunteers who maintain and promote the trail. Though the entire route is marked, the Buckeye Trail continues to change and improve. The BTA looks for ways to move road sections off the roads, and to upgrade those off-road sections to high quality trail.
