The Corporate FunRun Greater Columbus 5k, like all of our 2021 live events, will be run in a mask required, extremely safe manner. There will be any contactless interactions and social distancing and spaced out tabling will be implemented throughout the host facility. Please read and familiarize yourself with our Covid-19 race rules and best practices which can be found by going to and clicking on the “Covid-19 race rules” icon located on the right side of the toolbar.

Event Staging:

The pre-race activities (packet and tee shirt pick-up, race night registration, company gathering etc) and post-race party will all be staged inside of the Edwards Building as well as on the outside surrounding grass.

Race Course:

The 5k course will all take place within the confines of the 80 acres Fairgrounds. The start and finish line will be very near the Edwards Building.

Party & Catering:

The post-race party will feature free beer (3 varieties) free pizza (from Jet Pizza) and other goodies. For companies that want to do something a bit more elaborate on the food and beverage side, you are welcome to cater your own company picnic. We will provide comfortable table seating for your entire team. Our D.J will be playing music from start to finish. Our photographer will be taking team and individual photos which of course are free. Awards at 8-8:15 for fastest teams and individuals.
