THE PARTNERSHIP CONTINUES
Nationwide Children’s Hospital is honored to be the title beneficiary for the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon & ½ Marathon for the second year.
26.2 miles, each with a different story, a new inspiration, and another reason to keep running. These miraculous kids will be on each mile of the marathon on October 20th, supporting you every step of the way.
Meet your full or half marathon goal time with the help of experienced CLIF BAR and New Albany Walking Club pace team leaders!
CLIF BAR Pace Team leaders will be available to runners and walkers looking to run times from 1:30 – 2:45 in the half marathon, and times from 3:00 – 5:30 in the full marathon. NEW THIS YEAR, we’ve also added two half-marathon specific groups (1:40 and 1:50) to offer more traditional finish time options for our half marathoners! Since our half marathon course doesn’t split from our full marathon course until mile 12.9, you can also “split” any full marathon time and run with that pacer until the turn (i.e., you may line up with the 3:35 pace team leader to run a 1:47:30 half marathon).
Each Pace Leader runs even splits (every mile is run in the same amount of time) and provides encouragement and advice along the way. By following your Pace Team Leader, you’ll cross the line within two minutes of your goal finishing time. Register on the CLIF BAR website, or at the Health and Fitness Expo. There is no cost to participate.
FULL MARATHON TIMES: 3:00 (Tom), 3:05 (Dave B.), 3:15, (Kyle and David S.), 3:25, (Michael R.), 3:35 (Shannon), 3:45 (Jack), 4:00 (Colin), 4:15 (Diane), 4:30 (Kathleen), 4:45 (Lori), 5:00 (Marie), 5:30 (Star)
New Albany Walking Club pace leaders will be available to walkers looking to complete the half marathon in times from 3:00 – 3:30, and the full marathon in times from 5:45 - 7:00.

Since our half marathon course doesn’t split from our full marathon course until mile 12.9, you can also “split” any full marathon time and walk with that pacer until the turn (i.e., you may line up with the 6:15 pace team leader to run a 3:07:30 half marathon).
HALF MARATHON TIMES: 3:00, 3:15, 3:30
FULL MARATHON TIMES: 5:45, 6:00, 6:15, 6:30, 6:45, 7:00
