Congratulations, you’ve followed through on your New Year’s resolution to commit to a 5K race. There’s just one problem: You’re all dressed up with no place to go.
Need some ideas? We can help.
If you’re ready to run a 5K this weekend, there’s a race Sunday at Callaway Gardens. You’ll travel around Robin Lake.
The 5K is actually part of a series of races at Callaway Gardens on Sunday. A half-marathon and marathon are also offered. If those distances still terrify you, don’t worry.
Never miss a local story.
In fact, don’t even worry if you’re not in 5K shape this weekend.
You can wait another week and run the Super Bowl 1 Mile, 5K & 10K, scheduled for Feb. 4 in front of Country’s in downtown Columbus.
The mile run starts at 9:30 a.m., while the 5K and 10K start at 10 a.m. Registration rates go up after Jan. 29, so sign up now if you want to save money. If you’re not a Columbus Roadrunners member, cost is $10-$20 before Jan. 29.
Another upcoming race to note: The Big Dog Valentine’s Relay 5K is Feb. 11 at Locos Grill & Pub, 1358 13th St. in Columbus. Cost is $75 per couple/team, which includes a $30 Locos gift certificate and T-shirts. Register at Big Dog with cash or check and you’ll get $5 off.
Relay categories include husband/wife, mother/son, father/daughter, male/female open and more.
