    If you’re looking to set your pace on a flat course, this is your race. The course itself isn’t the most scenic, but it is nice to be able to run through a cute little town, and the view running over the bridge is great! The race is very well-run and well-organized, with thoughtful communication and good course identification. It’s carefully thought-out and executed, with nice swag and the chance to compete for an additional medal if you’re a top 100 finisher.

    The time of year makes this race a little dicey for me. This year, the heat was just a killer. There are several parts of the course that are running on blacktop or cement with zero shade, so some miles towards the middle of the race are more challenging than others. To combat the scorching heat, race organizers and local families set up a TON of water and aid stations, which were life savers. I will say, the food available at the finish line was minimal and the food/beverages and at the after party had limited options available.

    All in all, I probably won’t do this race again solely due to the likelihood for high temperatures on race day. But the race itself was great!

    Super flat course. Watch the weather. In 2017 it was crazy hot! Cute little town. They raffle off a truck at the end of the race but you MUST be present to claim the prize.

    I’ve participated in this race twice out of the 5(?) years. I would have to say, this is definitely one of my favorites. I’ve only been running for 4 years, but every time I’ve done this race, I’ve come away with a PR.
    – Expo – the expo is small, but makes for easy packet pick-up. It is held at the Commons in downtown Columbus.
    – Swag – in the two times I’ve run the race, the medals have been the same. The shirts run HUGE!!!
    – Course – the course runs through the city of Columbus, which is really a beautiful place. I’ve visited there many times, but the course takes you through some interesting parts you don’t normally see. It is BEYOND flat!!! I can’t remember even the slightest elevation, except for the slope that takes you up to the covered bridge in Mill Race Park. The volunteers are honestly the best I’ve ever encountered!! They are so supportive and always smiling.
    – Post party – Bring some cash because the post race party is FUN. They have activities, food and beverages for participants and their families. The party lasts until they GIVE away the Dodge pick-up!
    When looking at my schedule for 2017, I am planning my races around the Mill Race Half Marathon 🙂
