The Gary Smith Worthington Classic is a favorite community event that takes participants through Worthington neighborhoods and on the beautiful Olentangy bike path. It was established in memory of Gary Smith, Worthington teacher and state championship Track and Cross Country coach who was respected most for his integrity and compassionate commitment to young people. Smith believed in students’ possibilities, in giving them sound knowledge, supporting them during hard work, and letting each one know he or she had innate value. At Smith’s memorial service in 1998, athletes and parents conceived of this race in his honor. Proceeds from the race provide scholarships for Worthington students and donations to organizations that support children with medical or physical challenges.
