The Linden Classic 5K Run/Walk is an ode to one of Columbus’ oldest most well-established neighborhoods. The annual event is a unique celebration of faith, fitness, and fellowship. Starting at New Salem Baptist Church, 2956 Cleveland Ave. at 8:30 a.m., the 5K Race/Walk will wind through the neighborhood, down Cleveland Ave. and turn at 17th Ave. to finish at St. Stephen’s Community House.
Registration begins at 7:00 a.m. at St. Stephen’s Community House, 1500 E. 17th Ave. (next door to Maloney Park). Shuttles will be available to transport participants to the race starting point (New Salem Church).
Creating a connected community is our priority! Participants are encouraged to register in advance. Included in your registration fee are a commemorative Finisher Medal and a LINDEN CLASSIC t-shirt and wristband.
After the race, come join Linden residents for the Linden Community Festival & Expo at Maloney Park for music, food, games, SMART Columbus Car Show, Community Resource Expo, Kidz Zone and more. Bring your picnic gear, lawn chairs, and blankets and enjoy an amazing, fun-filled day in the park!
