The Most Pure Trail Experience in Columbus

What: FLIP’s 8th Annual Darby Creek Trail Run – 5k Run/Walk & 10k Trail Run

When: Saturday, July 13th

Registration begins at 7:45 am, races begin at 9 am… After-party directly when races are complete (RAFFLE PRIZE GALORE)!

Where: Battelle Darby Creek Metro Park – 1775 Darby Creek Drive, Galloway, OH 43119

Course Details


The course will be a 5k and 10k trail run through the picturesque, but challenging terrain of Battelle Darby Creek Metro Park. The 5k is relatively flat and can be enjoyed by runners and walkers of all skill levels. The 10k is a true challenge, ending in a stair climb that has become infamous among the Columbus trail running community.

In keeping with FLIP’s goal to encourage a cancer preventative lifestyle, FLIP encourages every level of fitness to come out and enjoy the scenery. For the safety of all participants, no dogs are permitted. Running strollers are allowed on the 5k course, but not the 10k (since it’s tough terrain).

FLIP recognizes that cancer prevention requires a dynamic shift in our thinking and is empowering individuals to engage in preventing cancer using a holistic approach:

Fight – Fighting together to challenge cancer risks outside of our individual control.

Live – FLIP is all about having fun and living life to its fullest… the best way to prevent cancer!

Inspire – It’s so worth it to challenge yourself, to reach friends and family (we’ll help you)!

Prevent – FLIP’s goal is to make prevention fun, approachable, simple and community driven.
