PACE CHART + TEAMS
For our 40th anniversary, the Nationwide Children's Hospital Columbus Marathon & 1/2 Marathon is bringing back a favorite from the past – The Striding Slyders Pace Team, sponsored by, you guessed it, White Castle! The Striding Slyders Pace Team was the first ever offered at the Columbus Marathon, and was one of the first pace teams anywhere in the country, when it was launched in 1999!
The Striding Slyders will be joined by pacers from the New Albany Walking Club, who have been part of our event for several years.
Experienced athletes from both groups will provide fun and excitement for both first time and experienced marathoners and 1/2 marathoners looking to reach their goals — whether that's a personal best, or just getting across the finish line. Advance sign-up is not required, but the Striding Slyders and New Albany Walking Club invite you to visit their booths at the Expo for information and encouragement!
