In 2012, The Columbus Marathon and Nationwide Insurance announced Nationwide Children’s Hospital as the title beneficiary of the annual running and walking event, renaming it the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon & ½ Marathon.
The Nationwide Children's Hospital Columbus Marathon & 1/2 Marathon is the 16th largest marathon in the United States with 19,000 participants, 3,000 volunteers and 100,000 spectators. Our marathon partnerships engage the community while gaining corporate and participant support of Nationwide Children’s Hospital’s non-profit mission. To date, the marathon has raised more than $4.5 million to support life-saving research and care.
Many on-course and race weekend sponsorships are available. All sponsorships benefit Nationwide Children’s Hospital. For 2016 sponsorship information, please contact Matt Piede at (614) 355-5429.
