Trail Running Columbus and Central Ohio


One of the best things about Columbus and Central Ohio is trail running and Greenswell Events has been the leader in trail running since 2001. From our “Wellness in the Woods Trail Running Series” to our night time trail runs we have been combining our love of trail running with our passion and for nature. Our name, Greenswell Events, is even rooted in our passion for trail running and the environment.  In 2019-2020, we created the ‘Der Wolfsrudel Lauf’, which translated means the “The Wolfpack Trail Runs” , which take place at Alum Creek State Park and Delaware State Park. The popular trail series provides experienced trail runners with courses and distances that challenge them, and “new” trail runners with a chance to get their shoes “dirty”.

Opportunities to hop off the pavement and onto a trail are just a short drive. The Columbus Metro parks offers 19 parks with over 200 miles of trails for beginners to trail blazers and veteran runners alike. Terrains vary from flat fields and rocky ravines to breakneck bluffs and rugged ridges.

Just a 15 minutes drive North of Columbus are the Preservation Parks of Delaware County.  With 10 parks, each park features of a number of earthen trails that allow a trail runner to experience an intimacy with nature that arguably can’t be matched.

Check out these parks and the other great locations in Columbus and Central Ohio. We hope to see you on the trails!
