Brought to you since 2012

Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon & 1/2 Marathon

The Marathon Exchange is back this year!

For the 9th time, and after a 2-year hiatus due to the pandemic, we are happy to announce that we will resume our in-person exchange this year! It is the 30th anniversary of the Columbus-Dresden sister city connection, so we are offering three Columbus-based runners the opportunity to travel to Dresden, Germany and represent our City and Marathon in the Dresden Marathon on October 30, 2022. The program comes with free race entry of your choice, a home stay and a personal program put together by the hosting committee.

To apply, all you need to do is fill out an application! We encourage you to read through the information here before you apply.
