This could be THE most important role of the day. We want to be absolutely certain that a train doesn’t stop runners and walkers from safely navigating the race course downtown.
We will have you position yourself at either the Bartholomew County Fair Grounds south of Columbus or at the train yard north of Columbus on Indianapolis Road to watch for a train coming into Columbus. You will have a radio and will be able to communicate with police who are in the Command Center if you see a train heading toward Columbus. After all of the runners and walkers have passed through Mill Race Park you are free to come downtown to drop off your radio and partake in the event festivities.
