    I don’t have the words to adequately express my gratitude for Columbus Running Company’s Event Management team and Andy and Heath’s seamless execution for our Inaugural event. They are personable and made themselves available for any and all questions as we navigated the world of permits, insurance, timing and registration.

    Working with their team took a significant amount of stress off of our shoulders - the course was perfectly marked and measured, the financial pieces were allocated efficiently and in a timely manner, the registration platform was user friendly, and the list could go on and on. Most importantly, their team is kind and caring. They are in it for the right reasons and I would hands down recommend them for any aspiring race director; you won’t regret it!

    Partnering with CRC for my inaugural 5K event was the BEST and easiest decision I could have made to ensure my event was organized and successful. As a first-time race director, Andy's expertise in event management, finding trusted vendors, navigating city permits, event insurance, you name it, Andy had the answer for it or a solution to explore.

    I would have been overwhelmed and likely spent more time and money if I had tried to plan and manage all of the components of this event myself without Andy's guidance. I would highly recommend partnering with CRC for any run event that you are planning, you won't regret it.

    I've had the pleasure of working with CRC and Andy Harris for over 8 years. From the moment I met them, they focused on helping me take my vision and turn it into a successful 5k event. Everyone is personable, reliable and enthusiastic about helping the walking and running community have a positive experience no matter the ability.

    I am very thankful for the support and honest perspective I have received from Andy and the rest of the team. Working with CRC is hands down the best decision I made for my event.

    AMAZING EXPERIENCE!! Andy Harris and the CRC team were excellent at facilitating our 5K. He is so experienced with multiple courses around Columbus, the event permit process, what you need on race day, how much merch to get, etc, etc, etc.

    We tried to organize a 5K on our own and it was extremely difficult. Having the experience and expertise of CRC made it all the more manageable and successful. Already booked for next year!!
