TRAINING TALKS

Nervous before the start of every weekend because that long run looms in the distance?  OUR race is put on by a Board of Trustees and Team of people who run or walk, so we get it.  And we're bringing you some help to ease your fears and answer some of your questions as you prepare for the 2022 Nationwide Children's Hospital Columbus Marathon & 1/2 Marathon.
 

Our 18-week "Friday Training Talk" video series will feature men and women who have done OUR race many times answering your training and racing questions!  Visit each Friday for a new tip, trick, or piece of inspiration.  You’ve got this!
