International 5k and Family Fun Run

March 25, 2018 @ 6:00 am - 12:00 pm


Columbia and Howard County’s rich diversity includes residents from across the United States and around the world. You are invited to run or walk with us in the spirit of community and friendly competition to celebrate our wonderful diversity.

Unique features of the event include the chance to represent the country of your choice by carrying the flag from that country and several categories of recognition. In addition, we begin the event with a “Parade of Nations”. All runners, walkers, volunteers and spectators are welcome to participate in the parade. Last year’s “Parade of Nations” celebrated Columbia’s diversity with participants from the United States and more than 70 other countries.

The route for the 5K (3.1 mile) run/walk and 1-mile run/walk will wind through some of Columbia’s neighborhoods allowing you to experience the richness of the planned community. Families are encouraged to participate.
