Columbus Marathon Reviews


4.8 Stars from 5 Runners

Review

Ran this race multiple times. The new course last year was a lot tougher miles 16-22. The first half is pretty fast and the last not so much. Save yourself for later.


Race Tips

Leave for the start line early, traffic is never good

Review

I've run this marathon twice, and both times it did not disappoint. Typically the weather in Columbus, mid October is perfect racing weather (starts in the low-mid 40's- and ends in the 50's). Last year was a little warmer than usual. The leaves are changing that time of year, there is a lot of crowd support, the people are friendly. The race has fireworks at the beginning, and they do a good job with corrals and wave starts.


Race Tips

Wear layers, and The race is mostly flat, but there is a steady incline in the middle-late miles. If you live in a hilly area, this will not be an issue, but if you live where it is flat, you will certainly feel it in your calves.


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

Purchase the parking garage passes offered on the website, and arrive early (30-60 mins) if you would like to use the restroom.

Review

This is an awesome marathon. It's a flat, fast course that's very scenic and with great crowd support. The only negative (and it's an obvious one) is that the marathon is very large and crowded. But they handle it extremely well. The race expo was awesome too.


Race Tips

Columbus does it right. Very well organized from beginning to end. The high energy start was the best of any race that I have done.


5 / 5 Stars
