“There’s just a buzz and excitement for something that’s not about to happen for another few months … Just a great electric energy. It’s phenomenal.” – Dr. Kyle Alexander, Alexander Chiropractic, RunFest 2013 vendor
On Saturday, hundreds of marathon runners, walkers, supporters and enthusiasts joined us for RunFest, our annual celebration to kick off training season for the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon & ½ Marathon. What initially began as a way to get people excited about the race has evolved into a celebration of the whole running and walking lifestyle … as well as a way to pay tribute to the patient champions we’re going to be honoring in October.
From meeting the champions to a fun photo booth and sneak peek at this year’s race shirt and medal, here are a few highlights from RunFest 2013:
