Location: Columbus, OH US 43215 Directions
Type: Run or Run/Walk

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.
