    This race attracts the elite and beginners. Well run by local race organizers. Nice swag. Decent expo most years. Has some hills but nothing super bad. MORE

    Cap City is one of the best races around. I have ran it four years in a row. It was disappointing that it was called due to severe storms this time around. All in all every other year, it is a class act and a blast to run. Great entertainment and excellent volunteers with multiple aid and water stations….

    Lots of participants and a great way to see the city up close. A negative for half-marathoners is the 10k racers break off and it is a bit disheartening to see them turning around. The after race refreshments are super with food and several adult beverages!

    Columbus is a relatively flat city (with a surprise hill towards the end of the race), great access for spectators, and a really well-executed finish line party! Every bit as fun and well-run as the “mega” race series out there and worth a trip to the capital city! 🙂

    This was my third year running Cap City. Still one of my favorites. If you like taking in the sites of the big city this is a good race. And the bands and spectators make it even better. If you don’t mind running in big crowds this is your race…if you do not like large crowds however, you may want to avoid this one. It usually has about 15,000 runners every year and honestly you will spend the first 3 miles doing a bit of bobbing and weaving, but get past that and it’s a pretty nice race.

    Second time running this race and the second year was even better than the first. Great course, scenic if you like going through the city, great aid stations, and great entertainment and supportive spectators along the course. Medals are beautiful and the after party is great! If you like big races this is one to put on your list…if you don’t like big crowds you may want to avoid this one, but overall this one is amazing!
