Achieving a personal milestone requires constant concentration. The last thing an athlete should have to do is wonder where they need to go for a quick restroom break. Today’s tip will help alleviate those concerns for athletes and spectators lining the 26.2 mile course.
Tip #4: Bathroom Breakdown
The 2016 Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon & ½ Marathon will have 600 portable bathrooms available throughout the Start and Finish ares and along the 26.2-mile course.
- In the “Athlete-Only” Start Area, there will be portable bathrooms in ALL Starting Corrals!
- Portable bathrooms also are located just past every fluid station on the course. Here are course maps for both races.
- For those who don’t want 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.
