UPDATED AUGUST 01, 2023
The Fuzzy Fandango will take place on November 11, 2023.
The 14th Annual Fuzzy Fandango is a trail-running extravaganza scheduled for Saturday, November 11th, 2023. The event will encourage runners, walkers, and sloggers of all abilities to enjoy the astounding Mohican Region by exploring a great network of trails. In true Fuzzy fashion, we have designed a new route for your running pleasure. Imagine this, the new route includes, well . . . some great hills! Really . . . aren't hills great!!!
Due to space and parking considerations, all race distances will be limited to less than 150 runners.
About the Fuzzy:
The Fuzzy Fandango Supports Nuhop, a residential summer camp for kiddos with special needs as well as outdoor education programming for school districts.
The race, start and finish, is on Camp Nuhop’s Pine Campus. To enhance The Fuzzy experience we will have a local beer for all finishers supplied by The Phoenix Brewing Company from Mansfield, Ohio.
For those wishing to make a weekend out of the experience, we will have a block of rooms at Mohican Resort and Conference Center listed under the Fuzzy Fandango. The start line of The Fuzzy is within easy walking distance of Mohican Resort.
Please call: 800-282-7275 and ask for the Fuzzy Fandango Race block at Mohican to make a reservation.
This will be an adventure away from ordinary running for some and just another day in the park for others but a great time for everyone!

Currently, the plan is to use private property and Mohican State Forest.
Please, please, please let us know if you are a DNF! We need your help so we are not looking all over the forest for you. If you DNF, please go to the Mid Ohio Race Management Team and tell them about the DNF (near race finish).
