Competing in a marathon or ½ marathon is difficult enough. Not knowing where to go, literally, is even more of a challenge. Today’s tip will help alleviate those concerns.
Everyone has to go to the bathroom, and on race day, everyone has to go at the same time. The 2015 Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon & ½ Marathon will have 600 portable bathrooms available at our Start Line as well as along our Course. Here are some other pieces of advice to help make the race more comfortable
- In the “Athlete-Only” Start Area, there will be portable bathrooms in ALL Starting Corrals! Don’t bother stopping at the trailers located along Spring Street – they will be LOCKED and are for spectators only!
- Portable bathrooms also are located just past every fluid station on the course, and at Mile 13 in the marathon there will be a collection of them. Here are course maps for both races.
- For those not wanting to wait as long, Children’s Champions will have special access to restrooms at the start. Or should we say a “VIPee” trailer, complete with running water! You can register to become a Children’s Champion through Race Day.
