We're LIVE!


Welcome to the 2021 Avina "Run Like a Girl" 5K. Our annual late summer event has an entirely new look and format with a total emphasis on FUN thru FITNESS. Hosted by Avina Women's Care the event will be staged at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium offering a fantastic all day experience for the entire family. Kid's 9 and under will love the "Frog Jog" and everyone will receive a great looking running shirts, custom medals and more.

NEWS FLASH!: OK, after years of "begging" we will be accepting entries for "that significant other" who promises to go "step by step" with their partner. No age group awards will be issued to your partner but cool shirts and finisher medals will be included as well as an all day zoo pass.

The Event

The Avina Run Like a Girl 5K is a 3.1 mile "out and back" course that starts and finishes inside the Columbus Zoo next to Discovery Lake. Both runners and walkers will enjoy a unique journey through the zoo plus an invitation to spend the entire rest of the day enjoying this 588 acre land of enchantment featuring over 700 species of wildlife.

All participants including family and friends should practice social distancing.
