Columbus 10K

Get out the way! Columbus race courses to avoid this weekend

Alright, so you didn’t sign up for either of the downtown races happening this weekend.

Don’t beat yourself up about it and definitely don’t punish yourself by getting stuck in the middle of all the ambitious runners who did sign up.

Here are the deets on two races happening in downtown Columbus this Saturday and Sunday and how to avoid the traffic:


Saturday, June 2 from 8- 10:30am

Route: This race benefiting the American Brain Tumor Association will begin at McFerson Commons Park but the links to the course info aren’t working.

Our suggestion: Avoid W Spring St, W Long St, Neil Ave, W Nationwide Blvd, Marconi Blvd, W Hickory St, N Front St, W Locust St, N Ludlow St, and maybe even N High St from 6am- 11am.
