A note from Race Director David Babner:
Our thoughts and prayers
go out to all of the victims and their families involved at the events
of the Boston Marathon yesterday. It is a sad day for the entire running
and walking community around the world. Many of our colleagues, friends
and families were there yesterday and the entire M3S Team joins you
with heavy hearts.
Rest assured that we are reviewing our
current security plans and processes with all applicable city safety
officials including the Columbus Division of Fire, the Columbus Division
of Police and Department of Homeland Security to see what modifications
to our current security and safety plans are necessary.
entire team is working hard in our planning of your event. I hate that
the type of thing that happened yesterday has happened in our country.
The running and walking community is strong, tough and resilient. Many
of you have joined the conversation on Facebook and are talking about
ways to honor and remember those affected yesterday.
I will be at the start line with you to begin the event and will be on the finish line welcoming everyone across the line.
a half marathon is an amazing positive experience and is a true
celebration and our team will continue planning this event to make this
event happen in a safe manner that celebrates every athlete.
I will see you on May 4th.
David Babner, Race Director
