Welcome back to our annual “26 Tips for 26.2 Miles” blog series. For the 26 days leading up to race day, athletes and spectators can get daily tips to make the most of OUR race. Stay tuned for tips on parking and food, cool viewing spots and race rules, and answers to all your pressing race day questions. We are here to help you make the most of your 2023 Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon & ½ Marathon experience! Let’s go!
Today’s tip will help alleviate all your porta potty problems as you head onto the 13.1-mile or the 26.2-mile course. There will be more than 500 portable restrooms available throughout the start and finish areas and along the courses, so you’re bound to find one. And remember, if the bathroom lines are long, go a little farther and you will find more bathrooms with no lines.
We’ve got you covered before the race! There will be portable bathrooms in ALL “Athlete-Only” starting corrals!
For those who don’t want to wait as long, Children’s Champions will have special access to restrooms at the start. Perhaps called a “VIPee” trailer, complete with running water! You can register to become a Children’s Champion now through race day.
Race Director Darris Blackford shared some words of wisdom to help make your bathroom break even better! Check out the video here that he’s featured in as part of our Friday Training Talks.
