A 5K fun run/walk is a common wellness initiative for groups. Downtown Columbus and the surrounding neighborhoods are proven sites for more races than we could ever list. Throughout the year, it seems there is a race every weekend. There are many choices of existing 5K routes or the opportunity to create an entirely new one.

The Scioto Mile, a newly restored riverfront with miles of connected pathways, is a popular location for races as it provides a gleaming view of the city’s skyline. The option allows use of some of the existing downtown running/bicycle paths to minimize costs. The City of Columbus is a close partner with the Greater Columbus Events Council (operated by Experience Columbus) which allows for a seamless process of securing permits and scheduling any necessary closures.
