RESULTS & PHOTOS

We are proud to provide the community of Columbus an opportunity to get out and work off that "COVID 15" in a safe and socially distant outdoor environment and with a professional race day experience.

We will be sending all vaccinated participants home with some awesome and unique Vaccination Races event swag!

Sunday, May 23, 2021

Nothing about this past year makes any sense so we figured let's stay in the same lane and offer a 6k, 12k, 18k and 1mi run/walk! Let's be honest, most of us put on a "COVID 15" so the extra kilometer is our way of getting back in shape! The event will be happening in person with social distancing and COVID-19 protocols to keep everyone safe. The race will be held northeast of Columbus in beautiful Sharon Woods Metro Park on their paved bike paths. The event kicks off with the 6k, 12k, and 18k distances at 9am followed by the 1mi run/walk just a few minutes later.
In order to participate in this race registrants MUST HAVE received at least one COVID-19 shot prior to race day. Anyone who is not vaccinated will not be able to participate in this race.
For some added encouragement to the 6k and 12k distances vs a traditional 5k/10k we would like you to watch this 17 second video. At the very least it should bring a smile to your face which is something we all need in our lives after a crazy 2020! 🙂

If this race transitions to virtual you will need to pick up your race swag bag at the originally scheduled packet pickup time/date above. No items will be mailed except for those who register for the virtual races.

Parking Information:
Parking is available close to the start/finish line in the adjacent parking lot. We will be setup at the very end of the first parking lot to your left as you enter into the park off Cleveland Ave.

Strollers and Dogs are Permitted:
This is a dog friendly event however all dogs must be on a short leash. If you are running a longer distance like the 12k or 18k make sure you know your dogs limits to ensure their safety. We will have a doggy water station setup alongside the "human" water station on course well as at the finish line!

We do allow strollers at this event but ask that you walk/run on the right hand side of the trail to allow other participants to pass.
