The It's NOT THREE CREEKS Event has gone VIRTUAL!

As goes 2020 the Three Creeks Half Marathon 10K 5K originally scheduled for late March, then for October 4th is now going to be a VIRTUAL event.  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, September 26th until the official race day of Sunday, October 4th 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 understand that virtual races are not for everyone so if you were already signed up we have some great options for you.  

Here Are Your Options:

Here is how the logistics will work in terms of your virtual race and swag.  You will receive your virtual Three Creeks shirt, a custom medal and a bib.  We will have your swag to you before Saturday, September 26th via the US Mail.  We would also like to celebrate your race with you so also submit a picture to us with an email 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/Hilliard/ThreeCreeksHalfMarathon10K5K When on this site, choose results, then SUBMIT VIRTUAL RESULTS, it's that easy!    

 

 

 

 

The Three Creeks event takes place during the final 2 weeks of March or the 1st week of April every year.  As soon as we able to get permits for gatherings of this size from the Columbus Metro Parks (Three Creeks), we will do so and notify you of the new date.  If the 2021 date does not work for you we will provide you a refund because you certainly tried to race this race and the 3rd time might not be the charm!

After we cover our costs, we will donate your registration fee to our partner GARRETT RECOVERY and their HOPE Resource Center.  HOPE has been open beyond their normal hours since mid-March and is providing food, hygiene, clothes and recovery services to the Hilltop community in West Columbus.    The number of visits to the center have increased by 500% since the pandemic hit Central Ohio.  We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon.

We understand. We hope you can join us next time including the return of the Three Creeks Half Marathon 10K 5K in 2021!
