Olympic All-Star Event Moving from Boston to Atlanta - ATLANTA – JANUARY 26, 2023 -- International track and field stars will return to Atlanta in 2023 in a way not seen since the 1996 Olympic Games. Atlanta Track Club in partnership with Global Athletics & Marketing, Inc., announced the inaugural adidas Atlanta City Games to be held in Centennial Olympic Park on Saturday, May 6.

The 2023 CRRC Winter Run will be returning to Granville, Ohio. New this year will be the start and finish at Timbuk Farms with a looped course on challenging local (some paved and some gravel) roads and through the beautiful Christmas tree farm. Expect to be challenged by a few hills throughout the course and some chilly Ohio winter weather. Post race you can join fellow runners with a cup of soup and hot chocolate to warming up.

There will be three distances to choose from: a Half Marathon (13.1 miles), Quarter Marathon (6.55 miles) or a 5K run/walk. The Half Marathon will be two loops of the Quarter Marathon course. The 5K course is basically an out and back with the loop inside of Timbuk Farms.  The START of the Half and Quarter Marathon distance will begin together at 1:00pm. The 5K start 15 minutes later, with a start time of 1:15pm.

The 2023 CRRC Winter Run is dedicated to Sue Daly who has been a long time supporter of the Columbus Running Community. Just two days before 2022 Columbus Marathon, Sue passed away following a three-year battle with lung cancer. Sue served in many roles with the Columbus Roadrunners Club, as President, Treasurer, race director of many local races, as the coordinator of the Race Director Clinic and the Columbus Marathon Expo during the early years of the marathon. Her support for the Columbus area running community and her dedication to running will be missed. Join us for the "Daly" double with the Half Marathon (2 loops), Quarter Marathon or 5K Walk/Run.
