Capital City Half Marathon and Quarter Marathon

April 27 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm

Capital City Half and Quarter Marathon, 5k logo

The 2024 OhioHealth Capital City Half Marathon and Quarter Marathon will be held on Saturday, April 27th, 2024 in downtown Columbus, Ohio. Dubbed the “Best Tour of Columbus On Two Feet”, this is one of my favorite races. I have personally run the half and quarter marathon several times over the past dozen years as it is a hometown race for me. The race is run by M3S Sports, who always puts on a well-organized and quality race.

Throughout the run you will pass through the downtown Columbus areas and many of the adjacient neighborhoods.  The race averages around 12,000 runners and walkers  making it one of the biggest races in Columbus next to the Columbus marathon. For those looking to run or walk, there are three separate events you can sign up for:

  • Half Marathon (13.1 miles)
  • Quarter Marathon (6.55 miles)
  • 5k (3.1 miles)

The race starts and ends on S. High Street next to the Columbus Commons and features the Byers Xtra Mile Finish Line Party, a post-race celebration for family and friends. All race participants will receive a variety of post-race drinks and food.

Packet pickup will be held on Thursday and Friday of race week (April 25th and 26th) at Vue Columbus located at 95 S. Liberty St. Columbus, Ohio 43215.  Hours are from 11 a.m. – 7 p.m.

My tip:  Sign up for the VIP Experience – The VIP experience is amazing. You get a private area with catered food before and after the race, your own private restrooms and gear check and unlimited food/drinks after the race.  It is expensive, but so worth it!
