Race entry frees aren’t exactly cheap, but registering for races helps people stay accountable with a healthy lifestyle and exercise routine – and being healthy IS frugal. Find a race that supports a cause close to your heart, or that has the best swag bag.
Running in the USA already has 70+ Columbus races listed for 2022, and many more will be added, so you’ll have no problem finding the ones that works for you! If you want to get into or keep your exercise routine consistent, signing up for a few races in advance may keep you on track.
Whether you want to sign up for one per month, every other month, or train for the half or full marathon, you’ll find plenty of options. Many races also benefit a charitable organization in some way and offer great swag, so check around the list to see what suits you best.
