Columbus ½ Marathon

Written by matt-mcgowan on 17 October 2011.

Columbus  October 16 - Over nine thousand runners and walker toed the stating line for the Nationwide Insurance Columbus ½ Marathon.  Morocco’s Abdelaziz Atmani who lives in Indianapolis, Indiana hit the 10km mark in the Columbus ½ Marathon in 30:25 while Bellbrook’s Jason Ordway would be one second back.  Atmani who has been cleaning up in Ohio prize money races this summer would pull away in the second part of the race and look to be on his way to the victory.  However, Atmani who had a lead bike hugging to him would go thru the half marathon turn at Nationwide Boulevard.  Atmani would have a few wheelchair athletes ahead of him but was the first runner to get to the turn were the marathoner who started with the half marathoners would continue north on High Street.  Even though a large flashing sign said for the half marathoner to turn, I noticed when I walk by the area the sound system which was there last year directing half marathon to turn was missing.  Plus, the numbers of bikes on the course made the event look like there was a bike event also being held, however, the bike with Atmani continue north on High Street when it should have turned and Atmani would follow.
