The 2016 OhioHealth Capital City Half Marathon is set to make history April 30.

WBNS-10TV will broadcast that race and 2016 Men's & Women's USATF Half Marathon Championships, marking the first time a half marathon in Ohio has been shown live. The station will air the event from 7:30-9:30 a.m.

Columbus won the chance to host the 2016 and 2017 Men's and Women's USATF Half Marathon Championships after a joint bid by M3S Sports, which produces the Capital City Half Marathon, and the Greater Columbus Sports Commission.

The Capital City Half Marathon, Patron Quarter Marathon and Commit To Be Fit 5K step off in downtown Columbus and finish at Columbus Commons.
