Since the announcement of our "virtual" format we have had several requests regarding the addition of that "other" gender. You know.....MEN. After careful consideration the answer is YES! Besides, they might make good company when you do your virtual 5K, 10K and Half Marathon. All male participants will receive a gender specific "long sleeve" running shirt, custom medal and koozie.
The safety and wellbeing of all of our participants has always remained our top priority. Therefore, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Avina "Run Like a Girl" is going VIRTUAL!
You will have from September 12th through September 26th to run or walk a half marathon, 10K or 5K. You can complete your designated distance at any course of your choosing.
Note: Participants are encouraged to record their times for posting on the UltraFit/USA website. We also encourage any pictures of your virtual race that you would care to share with others. Details to follow.
Just like in-person events, every participant will receive exclusive swag items. To make this year extra special we have expanded our swag to include an awesome long sleeve running garment, custom race medal with ribbon, head band and koozie. Pictures of these items will be posted soon! All swag can be mailed or picked up at Columbus Running Company after the September 26th (original race date).

Here are a few courses that you might consider for your virtual race. We tried to included courses located throughout Central Ohio. Enjoy your run and make sure you send us some pictures for posting on our site.
