“We’re looking forward to welcoming runners and walkers to Muirfield Village Golf Club and the FORE! Miler for a sixth consecutive year for what has become one of the premiere four-mile running events in Columbus,” said Memorial Tournament Executive Director Dan Sullivan. Race partners OhioHealth, City of Dublin, WBNS 10TV, Miller Lite, Coca-Cola and Grey Goose have provided the foundation for the success of this community-focused event. Their support has provided a platform for the Tournament to highlight the alliance between Nationwide Children’s Hospital and the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation, and, most importantly, made it possible for the FORE! Miler to raise essential funds for the Hospital.”
The Memorial Tournament, scheduled for June 1–7, will once again collaborate with M3S Sports to operate the FORE! Miler. The Memorial and M3S will work closely with City of Dublin officials to continue to provide a first-class race experience for participants and Dublin residents alike.
"Dublin is home to a healthy and wellness-focused community,” said Dublin City Manager Dana McDaniel. “The FORE! Miler is a great event kicking off one of the most important weeks in Dublin focused on world-class golf, hospitality and economic development. We value the opportunity to partner with the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide, OhioHealth, and all of the event’s sponsors, to bring a 'best of class' race and charitable event to central Ohio."
