Kids Fun Run Events in Columbus Ohio in 2018

Kids Fun Run Columbus

My kids love when I sign them up for a kids fun run, typically it's attached to a race I'm running and sometimes (like the Choo Choo race in April) I sign up for the full race so they can run the fun run.  Each fun run has it's own special theme which makes it more exciting and fun for the kids - including the Dash for Donation where mascots from all over come and run the race with the kids, or the Frog Jog at the Columbus Zoo.  Take a look at the list below - I've included pricing, dates, time, and if there's extra special stuff I've included that too.
