SIDS 5k Run and Walk 2014

Due to construction downtown we had to make a number of changes to this year’s SIDS 5k.  We will post a lot more information as the event gets closer but here is quick summary:

2014 SIDS Awareness 5k Graphic

  • Date:  Saturday, August 2nd, 2014
    • One week later than our normal date
    • Date change due to availability of the course
       
  • Location:  Brewery District, on Front Street in Downtown Columbus, Ohio
    • Only ~1 mile South from our prior location
    • Scroll down to see maps
       
  • Time:  SIDS 5k starts at 11am, Kids Fun Run will start at 10:30am
    • Our partners in the Brewery District requested we start 2 hours later than our normal time
    • Plus, this will help those who travel into Columbus to participate

 

This is still a very family friendly and uplifting event, great for both runners and walkers alike.  We are planning to do the Kids Fun Run, and to provide an option for those who prefer a shorter walk.

Please save the date, and tell friends!  We expect to open online registration in mid-May and will post more information here as the event gets closer.  Liking our Facebook page is another good way to stay informed.  Of course, if you think of any questions, send us an email:  contact-us@babywill.org.

New Location

New Course

The new 5k course will begin around World of Beer and Shadowbox Live, go down Front Street, into the Scioto Audubon Park, and back.  As much as we liked our prior course, this one might be better!  This course is not 100% finalized, but its pretty close to what we are expecting.

Planed course for 2014 SIDS 5k
 

Pictures of New Location and Course

Even as we transition from Winter to Spring, you can get a feel for how beautiful this new 5k course will be.  As you can see the course will feature a combination of road racing with an urban feel, to trail running along a beautiful river front.  There are also breathtaking views of the city skyline.
