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.
Proceeds from the event will be used to support families and organizations involved with current and future community initiatives, including but not limited to providing affordable housing, reducing hunger and infant mortality, eradicating human trafficking, and extending educational opportunities to Linden residents of all ages.
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!
