It is a unique, signature event that brings the community together to promote our capital city and the revitalization of Main Street. Imagine Columbia’s Main Street lined with fans as the best of America’s runners race under the street lights of downtown, at night.
For Main Street, by Main Street
Since this race is eight laps around two blocks, it will make for a great spectator event. The businesses, restaurants, and other downtown operations will benefit from all the downtown activity.
