Run with Purpose. Run as One. Finish with Pride. The National Veterans Memorial and Museum 5 Mile Run and Walk is an event to honor America’s heroes, all service men and women, past and present, who help keep our country safe and free. The event features a 5-mile course, each mile representing one of the service branches, an urban course through the streets of Columbus, Ohio and an exciting finish on top of the National Veterans Memorial and Museum.
A portion of each entry fee and event proceeds benefit the National Veterans Memorial and Museum.
Climb to Victory presented by Mount Carmel Health System.
Your run or walk is not complete until you make the exciting spiral "Climb to Victory" to finish atop of the National Veterans Memorial and Museum with the Columbus skyline as your backdrop. The finish up the spiral driveway to the top is challenging but it’s a small challenge compared to that of what many of our service men and women, and veterans experience throughout their service and lifetime.
Run with Purpose. Run As One. Finish with Pride.
Each mile of the National Veterans Memorial and Museum recognizes each of the military service branches. Each mile honors, showcases and is dedicated to a service branch and includes veteran and active servicemen and servicewomen, each with a different story, each who have or are currently serving our country with honor, and our reason for running or walking.
