Event Location: COSI - Genoa Park Downtown
The Spirit Sprint 5K is a community run/walk event hosted by Orthopedic ONE. The event is a fundraiser, including a challenge component, to raise funds to support local high school athletic and extracurricular programs. The event is also about community – it is a fun, family-friendly day, where communities can come out and show off their school pride!
How: It's simple! The central Ohio high school with the most participation points takes top honors! Upon registration, each participant will select the central Ohio high school they are running/walking for, and each of those participants earns that school points. So the more people who sign up in support of a school - the better chances that school has of taking home the top prize of $10,000 for first place!
BUT every school is a winner! As a fundraiser, ALL schools will earn 100% of its race registration proceeds. This alone could mean big $$ for your school! In years past, schools have raised nearly $10,000 in registration proceeds alone.
|Non-Race Attendee - City Ordinance limits the Spirit Sprint to 1,500 runners. Non-Race Attendees are not eligible to race but will receive full fundraiser benefits||
Early packet pickup will be hosted by Columbus Running Company. To best allow for a smooth race morning, we're asking all registrants to select an early packet pickup location during the registration process. On Thursday, October 5, Friday, October 6, and Saturday, October 7 your materials (goodie bag, bib number, and t-shirt) will be available during normal store hours (10a-8p Th-Fr, 10a-6p Sat) at the CRC location you chose during registration. With convenient locations in Dublin, Pickerington, Westerville, and Columbus' Short North neighborhood, you can pick the store nearest you.
Same day registration and packet pickup will be available at Genoa Park on race day. The registration and packet pickup areas will be in the registration tents beginning at 7:30 am.
Medals will be given at 10:15 am in the following categories:
Are strollers permitted? Yes. We encourage walkers and joggers with your children to bring the family and participate! We just ask that those with strollers line up at the back of the pack, so not to interfere with our competitive runners.
Are pets allowed? Unfortunately, pets are not allowed at this event.
Parking? There are plenty of parking garages very near to Genoa Park, and remember that on Sundays meters are FREE!
Whether you are running, walking, or joining us as a spectator, there will be lots of fun happening at this event! We will have an awesome MC who will be playing top hits. We will also have lots of food and treats from local restaurants, as well as kid-friendly activities, a bounce-style obstacle course, and MORE! Not to mention performances from some of our school bands, mascots, choirs and cheerleaders!!
