Blazin' 5 Miler

When: August 15, 2021
Where: Canal Winchester, OH
Race type(s): 5M

For those seeking summer shade, start the final month of summer off right with this gem of a race in southeast Columbus. When the dog days of summer arrive in their sweltering haze and the temperatures are hot enough to grill your GU, you can seek the tree-covered paths of the Blacklick Trail to keep you cool while you head out with your friends to take part in this CRC Signature Series race. Go ahead and dare that fiery mass to do its worst, you'll be under a cool green canopy for most of your 5 miles!

Starting at the Jerry L. Garver YMCA, this southeast Columbus race course winds next to Blacklick Creek before ending back at the YMCA where you can cool down and check out all the YMCA has to offer.

Beat the heat this summer and join us at the Blazin' 5 Miler.

2021 Event Option and Status

The 2021 plan for the Blazin' 5 Miler is to host both an in-person event at the Jerry L. Garver YMCA and a virtual event for those who aren't able or choose not to attend the in-person event. If our event has not been granted final approval to proceed in-person by the appropriate permitting entities as of July 1, 2021, all events will be transitioned to virtual. At that time, any changes and all details will be emailed, posted on social media, and posted on the race website.
