Vote for the Columbus Marathon to be named Best Walker-Friendly Marathon!

ImageDid you know that out of 18,000 Columbus Marathon & 1/2 Marathon participants in 2012, more than 1,000 walked the race? In fact, each year the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon & 1/2 Marathon has a special start corral specifically for walkers and a competitive walker division and awards. It’s no secret that we love our walkers, and has recently caught on to this as we’ve been named a finalist for their Walking Readers’ Choice Awards for Best Walker-Friendly Marathons!

But, in order for us to win this award we need your help! You can vote from now until March 19, and can do so once every 24 hours. Click here to cast your vote.
