About Main Street Crit

The 2013 Main Street Crit was held on Saturday, November 23rd AT NIGHT.  The events included a 5K Open Race for amateur runners, an 8K race for elite runners, and a Kids Fun Run.  All of the races are spectator-friendly  - they are “criterium style” on a two-block loop. As with our inaugural race in 2012, elite runners competed for over $8,000 in prize money!

  • Promote the growth and enhancement of Downtown Columbia

  • Promote a healthy lifestyle for children and families

Help us reach our goals and get in shape at the same time!
