USA Track & Field Sanctioned & Certified Road Races
The Ohio River Trail River Run Race is sanctioned event that is being run according to applicable competition rules. The race is part of the USATF Three Rivers Territory located in the State of Pennsylvania west of Potter, Clinton, Centre, Huntingdon, and shared jurisdiction of the counties of Marshall, Brooke, Ohio, and Hancock in the state of West Virginia. However, the event brings runners from the tri-state area - Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia!
 
The Ohio River Trail Race route is a USATF-certified course, which is a road race course whose distance has been certified for accuracy. Courses must be certified for any road running performance to be accepted as a record or to be nationally ranked. Furthermore, running a race on a certified course allows you to accurately compare your time to performances run on other certified courses because you can be sure the distances were the same. No one can truly establish a personal best if the course distance is not accurate. In addition, a sanction is required for a record to be set. There are some exceptions to this rule, however.
 
The Ohio River Trail Council will be hosting a series of USATF certified and sanctioned 5/10K road races annually.

USATF/RRTC Position on GPS used by runners

Effective June 6, 2014
 
GPS devices work by receiving signals from satellites. The quality of different GPS units can vary, but all of them can be affected by conditions such as buildings in urban environments or heavy overhead tree cover that interfere with reception of the satellite signals and can cause them to be inaccurate.
 
Race courses Certified by USATF are measured by a proven method that incorporates the calibration of measuring devices against a steel tape and are verified by multiple measurements.
 
Race courses are measured along a well-defined path called the “SPR”—the Shortest Possible Route that a runner can possibly run. Most runners don’t actually run the SPR, so the distance recorded by their GPS device will usually be longer than the certified length of the course, even though the course was properly measured along the SPR according to USATF rules.
