About Run Hard Columbia Marathon Weekend

26.2 miles of Awesomeness!!

Can you think of any better way to spend a Saturday than at the Run Hard Columbia Marathon? It’s the perfect track! A little hot? Take a dip in Lake Katherine (just don’t get caught). Interested in politics? No problem. The course ends at the SC State House. We think you’ll like it so much that you’ll run it twice. As a matter of fact, you probably should run it twice because it’s a double loop track!

The Run Hard Marathon in Columbia, SC is back again! This spring race event is fun for all ages. The Run Hard Marathon provides course support, fluids/nutrition, shirts, medals and awards. From 5K to Marathon, we’ve got the race you need at a price you’ll love! So, save the date and we’ll see you in March. Our course is fully certified from the USATF.

The Run Hard Columbia Marathon was founded by Jesse Harmon, CEO of Crossover Athletics and Run Hard Running Teams. Run Hard teaches kids how to lead and live an active, healthy and wholesome lifestyle. We do this by focusing on nine core areas: Peer Pressure, Perseverance, Wise Choices, Work Ethic, Leadership, Teamwork, Honesty, Respect and Honor.

Highlights

Welcome to Columbia, the capital city of South Carolina and home of the Fighting Gamecocks. We hope you take some time to enjoy the city during Marathon weekend. Looking for a great place to catch a quick run? Lace up and head to the Riverwalk. It's a great run and a great view. Family fun? No problem. Head straight over to Riverbanks Zoo, one of the top ten rated zoos in America. With so much to do, it's no wonder that Columbia was voted one of Kiplinger Magazine's 10 Great Places to Live!    

We could talk about Columbia all day, but if you really want to know what the deal is with this great city, check out The Midlands Authority for Conventions, Sports and Tourism.
