JOIN US THIS OCTOBER
There are a million reasons to race with us in Columbus each October. From the fast course to the incredible partnership with Nationwide Children’s Hospital, race weekend is an experience unlike any other.
Nationwide Children’s Hospital is honored to be the title beneficiary of the Columbus Marathon & 1/2 Marathon.
2022 marks the 11th year of this partnership, and more than $11 million has been raised for the hospital. Register to join us on the starting line and to do your part for Nationwide Children’s.
The Columbus Marathon course features minimal elevation changes. Enjoy a tour of downtown Columbus, including local landmarks like the Ohio Statehouse, Nationwide Children’s Hospital, and historic German Village, as well as tours of Bexley, Upper Arlington, Grandview Heights, and The Ohio State University.
24 miles are represented by a patient at Nationwide Children’s, one is dedicated as an Angel Mile for the special children who have been taken too soon, and one is an “alumni mile” for the Patient Champions from past years. These patients and their families will be beside every mile of the course to cheer on participants and serve as a visual reminder of how you, along with the marathon, are helping ill and injured children through your participation.
