Columbus Running Company

2012 Celebrity Ghosts 5k

Runners and walkers of all ages are invited to participate, as themselves or dressed as their favorite deceased celebrities. The race will begin at 7:00pm on E. College Ave. near Jimmy V’s. This year’s course includes Uptown Streets, the Otterbein University Campus and Westerville leisure trails.

The race is sponsored by the Westerville Visitors & Convention Bureau and the Columbus Running Company and is being held in conjunction with the long-running Midnight Madness event presented by the Westerville Uptown Merchants Association. Midnight Madness features horse-drawn wagon rides, live music, trick or treating in participating shops, a Halloween storefront decorating contest and more.

“It’s the combination of the night run, the festivities and the goofiness of dressing up packed into one 5K that makes it stand alone,” said Matt Deleon. “It is also a nice course.”



Packet pickup will be at Columbus Running Company's Westerville location on Thursday October 25 through Friday afternoon.

We look forward to seeing you out for this fantastic event!
