10th Annual Shawshank Hustle race

August 10 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am

Join us for an escape from Shawshank State Prison on August 10, 2024 at The Historic Ohio State Reformatory. The 4.6 mile running race will feature filming locations in The Shawshank Redemption. During the run you will pass The Bissman Building which served as The Portland Daily Bugle and Brewer Hotel, Mansfield Antiques Gallery which was the Pawn Shop window that Red looked through at the compass that would help him find the oak tree and Brooks’ Bench where Brooks sits down on the bench in Mansfield’s Central Park to feed the birds, hoping his friend Jake (his pet crow) will show up to say hello, but he never does. The course finishes with a tour of The Historic Ohio State Reformatory where you can see the cell blocks, the Warden’s office, desk and safe, the Parole Board room, Brooks’ hotel room with a carving on the ceiling that reads, “Brooks was here. So was Red” are on display. Andy Dufresne’s actual escape tunnel that was used for filming is even on display!  Whether you are a die hard runner or walker, die hard Shawshank Fan, or both, you won’t want to miss this event!
