    Join us for a downtown adventure! The Columbus Outdoor Pursuits Scavenger Run is a fun way to get a great workout at your own pace, support your community and win great prizes from the unique local businesses that make Columbus special!

    How it works:

    • Check in at 10:30AM at the Wolf's Ridge Tap Room
    • At start time (11:00am) the checkpoints will be revealed.  Plan your strategy to make it to as many checkpoints and collect as many raffle tickets as possible within the hour time frame. Checkpoints range from a block away to 2 miles - you choose your distance and pace. This is a fun event for everyone! (Keep an eye out for surprise opportunities to gain extra tickets at certain checkpoints!)
    • Make it back to Wolf's Ridge by noon, turn in your tickets, grab a cold drink and have your chance to win great prizes, all while supporting some wonderful local organizations!


    Columbus Outdoor Pursuits has teamed up with three local organizations to offer a FANTASTIC morning of fun with your friends while helping others. Proceeds from the event will go  toward these three community organizations.

    Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity-based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. Life skills are taught through dynamic interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k running event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.

    Franklinton Cycle Works proudly provide the space, parts, tools, and knowledge to offer our neighbors affordable access to two wheels.

    Pickerington T1D foundation The PJDF is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising money for JDRF and awareness of Type 1 Diabetes in our community.
