Searching for this year’s Spirit Award Winners!

Whether you’re running or walking, a novice or an expert, striving for a PR or doing it just for fun, completing a ½ marathon or marathon is no easy feat. While each participant should be proud of their accomplishment, every year we honor a select group of individuals who not only participate, but do so despite adversity.

If you know of a registered race participant who is overcoming a major obstacle while training for the 2015 Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon & ½ Marathon, nominate them for a Spirit Award!

“The Spirit Award is a way for the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon & ½ Marathon to recognize individuals who inspire and embody perseverance and strength. They are a testament to our sport and this event and it’s always an incredible privilege to celebrate them and their accomplishments.” – Darris Blackford, Race Director.

To nominate an individual for a 2015 Spirit Award, please email sarah@irvinpr.com by Wednesday, August 26 with the following information:

  • The nominee’s name, phone and email address;
  • The nominator’s name, phone number and email address;
  • A 200-word-or-less description of why that person deserves to be recognized.

The board of trustees of the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon & ½ Marathon will 10 select Spirit Award winners; the 2015 event marks the eighth year for the program.
