As we put the final preparations in place for this year’s race, we’ll be sharing “26 Tips for 26.2 Miles” to make sure you’re ready to go on race day. Click here to read them all, or follow along on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.
If racing runs in the family, Tip #12 is for you! On October 18, we invite you to share all the marathon fun with the little ones at the Highlights Kids’ Run.
Just like the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon, the Highlights Kids’ Run is moving to North Bank Park. This new location will provide a true race day experience for kids as they will get to cross the VERY SAME Official Start/Finish line that will be used on race day.
Race opportunities include:
- The diaper dash (ages one to three) will be 60 yards;
- Four to five-year-olds will run .15 miles;
- Six to eight-year-olds will run .35 miles;
- Nine to 11-year-olds will run .80 miles.
- additionally, there will also be a wheelchair division.
Join us from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for registration and the Kids’ Expo featuring local children’s organizations and vendors, food trucks and a special performance from the one and only Shazzbots! The race will then start promptly at 1 p.m.
