Event Description

December 2, 2010 Updated Nov 2, 2012 at 11:16 AM EDT

Located in the heart of northeast Indiana, Columbia City is a small-town community with true Hoosier values. It's a community rooted in its agricultural heritage, strengthened by its commercial and residential development, and proud of its hometown heroes.

In honor of those heroes and servicemen and servicewomen throughout the state and nation, the Columbia City Parks and Recreation Department, Time-to-Run professional chip timers, and long-time race director Gary Bird have teamed up to launch the Veterans Marathon, Half-Marathon and 5K on November 10. Only 20 miles west of Fort Wayne on US Highway 30, Columbia City is easy to find, easy to get to, easy to appreciate, and easy to enjoy. We can't promise the race is easy to run, but we promise you'll have fun.

Come experience the challenge and excitement of running the Veterans Marathon, Half-Marathon or 5K and do so in honor of America's veterans. You'll be glad you did.
