Veterans Marathon

Three Rivers Running Company is proud to continue the tradition of the Veterans Marathon, a superb event honoring our nation’s Veterans.

Located in the heart of northeast Indiana, Columbia City is a small-town community with true Hoosier values. It’s a community rooted in its agricultural heritage, strengthened by its commercial and residential development, and proud of its hometown heroes.

In honor of those servicemen and servicewomen throughout nation, Three Rivers Running Company has teamed up with the Columbia City Parks and Recreation Department and Time-to-Run professional timing to present 8th Annual Veterans Marathon, Half-Marathon and 5K on November 11, 2017.

Only 20 miles west of Fort Wayne on US Highway 30, Columbia City is easy to find, easy to get to, easy to appreciate, and easy to enjoy. We can’t promise the race is easy to run, but we can promise that you’ll have fun.

Come experience the challenge and excitement of running the Veterans Marathon, Half-Marathon or 5K and do so in honor of America’s veterans. You’ll be glad you did.

Columbia City Aquatic Facility

Our goal of raising 4.2 million dollars for the construction of a new aquatic facility has been achieved! Thank you so much to the Regional Development Authority for the $844,000 dollars that they donated toward our project. Also, thank you to The Billy Reffitt Family for donating an additional $17,000 toward the new aquatic facility! The new facility will be called the Russel and Evelyn Fahl Aquatic Facility. We are hopeful that construction will start this fall!!

We are still trying to raise $180,000 for an outside pavilion, which also includes storage space. This structure was taken out of the original project in order to make the project less expensive. We feel this would be a great addition to this facility and we would love to see it built!

We also have a Aquatic Facility Fundraiser going on until December 31st. This link will allow people to purchase a brick with their name(s), or business, on a brick that will be permanently placed at the new Russel and Evelyn Fahl Aquatic Center. Brick Fundraiser Link:

US 30 Update

The Local US 30 Planning Committee now has a concept document available for the public to view. The concept is only an idea, as any future US 30 Project would be designed and financed by the Indiana Department of Transportation. The Committee is thankful to all of the citizens and businesses who contributed to the concept. See the document by clicking here.

Columbia City is a member of the US 30 Coalition. The Coalition meets quarterly to discuss and consider the impact of the highway on the counties and communities on the US 30 corridor. They will also advocate on behalf of our residents and businesses when the project begins. See the Coalition website at: https://www.us30coalition.com/
