Run! White, and Blue
Come be a part of true running history this Memorial Day and join The Upper Arlington Civic Association as they present the 42nd Annual Memorial Day Run. This event is the oldest running/walking event in Columbus and is the place to be this Memorial Day. The 5 mile course takes place on the residential streets of Upper Arlington and is a USATF certified course. 100% of the proceeds benefit the Upper Arlington Civic Association and support all of their charitable functions throughout the year.
Over the years, the UACA has developed right along side the community it serves. Many programs have come and gone. Some long term, and others in response to particularly noteworthy circumstances in the community, state, or nation. Current programs include the Easter Candy Hunt, Civic Pride Day, Memorial Day Five Mile Race, The Fourth of July Celebration, Labor Neighbor Day, Haunted Forest and Christmas in the Park. Additionally, numerous appreciation dinners, Junior Directors Scholarship Program, outstanding educator Golden Apple Awards and a Big Band Swing Celebration fill the organizations schedule of events. While this history is by no means complete, it does recap many of the highlights of the Civic Association and it's Sixty plus year effort in making Upper Arlington a community of which it's residents can be justifiably proud.
