Description

Welcome to the 13th Annual Big Nut Strut! You can participate in person or virtual for the 5K race or 1 mile walk. The Big Nut Strut brings our community together helping raise support for all Big Walnut Preschool, Elementary, Intermediate, Middle School and High School PTOs. These committees enrich our students educational experience through support of additional programs and materials to their curriculum. Come join us to show your EAGLE PRIDE! Each racer will receive a race shirt (while supplies last), swag bag, race day celebrations, your running times posted on the Columbus Running Company website (and on the results tab at the top of this page) and bragging rights with your fellow racers!

We are going cashless!
Please note that all race day registration will be cashless and all registration will be done online (no cash transactions). Please bring your smartphone and credit card with you on race day if you or your friends are planning to register on the day of the race! Thank you so much. We are so excited for the 13th annual Big Nut Strut!
