It may sound cheesy, but from athletes to spectators to volunteers, everyone who participates in the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon & 1/2 Marathon is one big family. We love how our community bands together and supports each other through this amazing journey. This year, we’re celebrating that strong bond by inviting you to participate in our “Marathon Groupie” photo challenge!
Based on the new group selfie trend called “groupies” (anyone remember Ellen’s photo at the Oscars?), we’re asking both athletes, volunteers AND spectators to get into groups and snap photos all throughout race day. Excitement, nervousness, sweat, adrenaline, signs, and of course, medals are all necessary pieces of the race day experience – and we want to see it through your eyes! To help you get started, we’ve created “Groupie Goals” (think photo scavenger hunt!) with fun things to take a groupie with. The Groupie Goals are:
Joining in on the fun is simple. All you have to do is gather a group, snap a photo, and post it to Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #CMGroupie. And remember to get creative!
Good luck to everyone joining us on race day!
