The Biggest Celebration of YOU yet! 
We are incredibly excited about the 14th Annual OhioHealth Capital City Half Marathon, Quarter Marathon and Commit To Be Fit 5K.   While "Cap City" has become "BIG TIME" with a 2 1/2-hour live broadcast of the event on WBNS 10TV and the host of the USATF Half Marathon National Championships for the second straight year, our focus remains on the CELEBRATION and PARTICIPATION of YOU. 
When we founded M3S Sports and The Capital City Half Marathon, the mission was to provide a REMARKABLE EVENT EXPERIENCE for YOU, OUR partners, and the ENTIRE community.  We continue to strive to do that every day and with every event we produce. Our team has developed the "best tour of Columbus on two feet."  We can't wait to showcase our remarkable city to the running world again this year.   The development of Columbus as a premier destination and one of the best running and walking communities in the country is truly remarkable. 
Registration is up more than 75 percent year to date! If you are not registered yet, don't wait as early registration ends on December 31st. Register Now

We want YOU to participate! Three distance options (13.1, 6.55 & 3.1) make Cap City accessible for everyone! 
The OhioHealth Capital City Half Marathon (13.1 miles) is complemented by our Quarter Marathon (6.55 miles) and the Commit to be Fit 5k (3.1), offering a variety of distances for ALL participants.

Those in the Half Marathon distance will be treated to the "best tour of Columbus on two feet" with numerous bands and deejays on course to keep you going.

We invented the quarter marathon distance to allow participants to experience "all the party" at "half the distance". The Commit to Be Fit 5K is a chance to be part of all the Cap City experience and see what we are all about.

New this year, the Commit To Be Fit 5K features a great partnership with the  Let Me Run program, encouraging more than 100 middle school aged boys the opportunity to showcase their training efforts while building self-esteem and encouraging an active lifestyle.

Better Training by Papa John's
"Better Training, Better Fuel"  

We are proud to continue our partnership with locally owned Papa John's. Papa John's will continue to host the largest pizza party in the country at our finish line, give 5% of the proceeds from sales on race day to the OhioHealth Foundation and this year will help provide "better training tips" and present the new "Papa John's Pacers" to guide you to finish line.

Each newsletter will provide "better training" tips from our team of coaches
including  running coach  Aimee Price  and lifestyle coach  Julie Wilkes.
