Agnes 's thoughts:

The Columbus 10k is a fun race to run. The weather was perfect when I ran it but it got a bit hot towards the end (the race is in early June). The organizers and volunteers really did a great job putting this race together. This is also a family friendly race as there is a kids run in the morning before the 10k started off. I would recommend this race to anyone looking to run. There are a few hills on the race course but it isn't that bad.

RACE EXPO -
None. This is a smaller race so participants pick up their race bib and race t-shirt from one of the Columbus Running stores (all details will be provided in an email to the race participants).

RACE LOCATION -
--race start was located at the COSI building in downtown Columbus so participants could use the indoor bathrooms before the race which is really nice
--parking is available free downtown at any parking meter because the race was on a Sunday. The COSI parking lot was also available for parking but that isn't free. I parked on Broad street at a parking meter (free) which was about 1 block from the race start.

RACE COURSE -
--not a crowded race (about 700 participants I think but definitely less than 1000 people)
--the course went through the Olentangy River trail which is beautiful because of all the trees
--the course has a few hills which I didn't know about so be prepared to climb up some hills
--the race is in late spring so the weather is bound to be nice

POST RACE/RACE SWAG

--after the race, everyone received a water bottle with water already filled up in it which was nice because if you're thirsty, you can drink water right away. All race participants also received a medal
--there were pancakes and sausages provided free of charge for everyone to indulge in. Skyline Chili also provided free food (hotdogs with chili and cheese)
