About and History
The Challenge Columbus sports competition started in 2015 as a 5k Run/Walk event and has been held each year since in the second week of May. The 5k event has attracted teams from all over Central Ohio for a morning of Fun, Fitness and Corporate Camaraderie.
Since 2015 the 5k event has grown from 450 participants to 750 participants in 2018. Participants representing 40 organizations and 14 industry categories took part in 2018.
In 2019, Challenge Columbus will begin to add more events to its competition portfolio. By adding events, Challenge Columbus will broaden its appeal and increase participation by those wishing to take part in a sport that better fit with their aspirations.
