The Grandview Grind 15k will start and finish at Columbus Youth Camp in Columbus, Indiana. Runners will make their way “down” to Grandview Lake and run the beautiful, yet hilly 7 miles around the lake before returning back “up” to Columbus Youth Camp. This course is loved by local athletes for training purposes and we are excited to offer the opportunity to race the course. Expected to be the worst race ever but we hope you will walk away loving the Grandview Grind 15k! All proceeds benefit the Columbus Running Club's youth programming.
