The 2012 Fight For Air Run/Walk Columbus will take place on Saturday, September 29, 2012 at Bicentennial Park in downtown Columbus, Ohio. Historically, one of Columbus’ most popular parks, Bicentennial Park has been transformed to a downtown destination with the addition of a one-of-a-kind fountain, park restaurant and eye-catching performance pavilion. From flower gardens to fountain play and concerts to culinary delights, the park offers something for everyone. The park is also part of the Scioto Mile which stretches along the riverfront from the vibrant Arena District to the natural beauty of the Whittier Peninsula (the turnaround point for the route). The Scioto Mile reconnects downtown to the Scioto River through an integrated system of parks, boulevards, bikeways and pedestrian paths.
