The 2020 OhioHealth Capital City Half & Quarter Marathon and the OhioHealth Emerald City Half & Quarter Marathon will be held virtually in 2020 in an effort to stop the spread of the coronavirus and protect the health and safety of participants, volunteers and spectators.
The OhioHealth Capital City Half Marathon – including the Half Marathon, Quarter Marathon and 10TV Commit To Be Fit 5K – was originally scheduled for April 25, 2020 then rescheduled to August 29, 2020 after Gov. Mike DeWine banned mass gatherings in the wake of the nationwide coronavirus outbreak. The ban has not yet been lifted.
The OhioHealth Emerald City Half & Quarter Marathon – including the Half Marathon, Quarter Marathon and 5K – was scheduled for August 23, 2020 in Dublin, Ohio.
The decision to cancel in-person events and hold both the OhioHealth Capital City Half Marathon and OhioHealth Emerald City Half & Quarter Marathon events virtually was made in compliance with the Governor’s Order; and in consultation with state and local health officials; OhioHealth, the official healthcare provider and title partner of both events.
“While it is unfortunate that we cannot hold the OhioHealth Capital City Half Marathon and the OhioHealth Emerald City Half & Quarter Marathon in-person this year, the health and safety of our participants, volunteers, partners and spectators will always be our No. 1 priority,” Race Director David Babner said. “I look forward to producing remarkable virtual experiences for our participants, partners and the community. We have added some fun elements to our virtual events and will provide participants with a great platform to continue their journey of getting fit, staying fit and living fit.”
“The COVID-19 pandemic has certainly made a tremendous impact in this community, and we know there is no substitute for proceeding with caution when it comes to the safety of race participants, supporters, and spectators. The decision to make these events virtual this year is not what we hoped for, but is the correct decision,” said Sue Jablonski, OhioHealth Senior Vice President, Chief Communications Officer. “What this pandemic can’t touch is the valued partnership we have with M3S Sports, and with the runners and walkers for the OhioHealth Capital City Half Marathon and the OhioHealth Half & Quarter marathon. We’ll see you virtually this year, and can’t wait to see you in person when the time is right.”
The Virtual OhioHealth Capital City Half & Quarter Marathon and Commit To Be Fit 5K will be held August 28-30, 2020 and the Virtual OhioHealth Emerald City Half & Quarter Marathon and 5k will be held August 21-23, 2020. Participants in both events will be able to upload their results to the OhioHealth Leaderboard and upload event photos after completing their respective distances.

M3S Sports has been consulting with city of Columbus officials over the past weeks to discuss updates regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19). In consideration of Ohio Governor Mike DeWine’s State Order banning mass gatherings of more than 100 and under the guidance of Columbus Mayor Andrew J Ginther, the OhioHealth Capital City Half & Quarter Marathon has been rescheduled to August 29, 2020.
“We thank Mayor Ginther for his leadership and guidance on all matters of public health and safety, especially in these times of uncertainty due to the spread of COVID-19,” Race Director David Babner said. “The health and safety of our participants, volunteers, partners and spectators and others involved is our top priority. To that end, we are confident that moving Cap City to August 29 is the safe and prudent decision.”
The 17th Annual OhioHealth Capital City Half & Quarter Marathon and Commit To Be Fit 5K will still feature all the elements that have long made the event the city’s annual celebration of the healthy active lifestyle, including the Byers Xtra Mile Finish Line Party and PNC Post-Race Concert at the John F. Wolfe Columbus Commons.
“Rescheduling Cap City to late August was not an easy decision, but we look forward to celebrating our participants and showcasing Columbus to the region on August 29 with our biggest and best event yet,” Babner said.
In addition to Mayor Ginther, M3S Sports followed the advice and guidance of OhioHealth; Dr. Benjamin Bring, the event’s Medical Director; City Council President Shannon Hardin; Dr. Mysheika W. Roberts, the Columbus Health Commissioner; the Franklin County Board of Commissioners; the Greater Columbus Sports Commission and others in making the decision to reschedule.
“We applaud M3S Sports for making the decision to move Cap City from April until August as part of our community’s effort to stop the spread of COVID-19,” Mayor Ginther said. “Cap City has long been a tremendous partner of the city. I have personally participated in Cap City several times in the past and I look forward to Cap City once again celebrating Columbus on August 29, 2020.”
The OhioHealth Capital City Half Marathon has been held annually in Columbus and surrounding neighborhoods since 2004. An estimated 14,000 runners and walkers are expected to participate in 2020.
“We appreciate the support and understanding of participants, volunteers, partners and the entire community in making this decision,” Babner said. “We know thousands spend all year training for our event, and we are honored to celebrate each and every one for all of their hard work. We look forward to rewarding our runners and walkers with a fantastic celebration on August 29.”
