The Nationwide Better Health Columbus Marathon run starts at the intersection of Broad and High Streets in downtown Columbus this Sunday, October 21, at 8:00 a.m. for runners (7 a.m. for walkers).
Marathons are great special events because they showcase city neighborhoods to the hundreds and sometime thousands of participants and spectators.
If you are not running think about cheering on the racers. It is a fun and encouraging way to spend a Sunday afternoon and as a past marathoner can attest to how helpful it is to see people on the sidelines. If you do decide to go this Sunday think about doing one or all of the following:
  • Write well wishes in chalk on the street
  • Cheer, clap and whistle- call out bib numbers or names
  • Bring a poster or sign
  • Bring candy, granola bars or cut oranges to hand out
A full course map is available at which can help you locate the runners or find alternative driving routes.
