Keeping You Safe at The Community Cup

Participant safety is our top priority at this year’s event. For the past two years, we’ve seen the Community Cup be a place for Columbus organizations to promote team buildingwellness and camaraderie. During this time when we’re all more eager than ever for those tenets of teamwork, we knew it was important to hold this event, adjusting as necessary to keep the community safe. For that reason, we’re amplifying our public health precautions to safely hold both in-person and virtual events. 

Our robust health and safety plan, approved by the Franklin County Department of Health and following CDC guidelines, includes the following measures: 

  • Going virtual for the one-mile walk and 5K race 
  • Allowing teams to sign up for individual time slots for in-person events, during which social distancing among teammates will be required  
  • Utilizing OhioHealth for participant temperature checks upon arrival at Fortress Obetz 
  • Requiring masks or face coverings for all participants at in-person events 
  • Sanitizing all event equipment between uses
