    The Columbus Half Marathon 10K 5K 2020 has gone VIRTUAL!

    The Annual Columbus Half Marathon 10K 5K event is going VIRTUAL for 2020!  While we will miss seeing you in person, we still want to give you a great race experience.  So that you may still prepare as if your race is in person but with some flexibility you will have from Saturday, July 25th until the official race day of Sunday, August 9th to complete your event.   Do it any way you want - on a treadmill, walking the dog, your normal route, or go to the Three Creeks Metro Park, whatever works best for you!  We simply want to encourage you to get out and get active.  If you choose to turn in a time, great!  But it won't be required.   

    We have redesigned a NEW LOGO specifically for this event.  You will still receive your great race shirt, a custom medal and a bib. It is our goal to have these to you before July 25th so that you can do a great post race selfie wearing them.  If you would like to submit a picture, you may do so by emailing it to linda@ultrafit-usa.com and we will include in on our social media outlets.

    If you would like to turn in your time simply go to https://runsignup.com/Race/OH/Groveport/ColumbusHalfMarathon10K5K.  When on this site, choose results, then SUBMIT VIRTUAL RESULTS, it's that easy! 

    Anyone that has signed up prior to today, July 6th will have their packet mailed free of charge.  If you are signing up after July 6th, there will be a small shipping/handling charge to have your swag sent to your home.

    Thank you for understanding the changes that we have been forced to make this year, and we'll look forward to seeing you in 2021!
