Description

Come be a part of the Columbus Westside's newest tradition!  This event benefits Veterans on the Hilltop and provides an opportunity for exercise and community togetherness. Included in your registration fee are a high-quality finisher medal, a great race shirt, and a fun race expo with plenty of community involvement from participants and local businesses.  Hosted by Columbus Westside Running Club with timing by Columbus Running Company.

$25 for a shirt, medal, and a chance for finisher awards?!  We want our race to be accessible to everyone, and so have worked with our local community partners to be able to offer pricing that is a little less than a typical 5K.  (note:  shirt sizes guaranteed for entries received before 6/27 at 11:59 PM)
