When it comes to the top cities in America for runners, Columbus is running circles around the competition.

ARRIS Composite, a global manufacturing + technology company, ranked Columbus as the No. 10 best running city in the US for 2023. We’re not sure what’s a bigger flex: this achievement, or being one of only three non-west coast cities in the top 10.

The study measured factors like air quality, average distance to a park, and average rain fall to determine a score where Columbus earned 64 out of a possible 100 points. Not too bad considering no other city in Ohio made the cut.
