Registration is now open for the fifth annual Community Cup presented by The Columbus Foundation. 

The annual team building event run by the Greater Columbus Sports Commission will take place Friday, July 29 from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Fortress Obetz. Linda Shetina Logan, executive director of the Greater Columbus Sports Commission, said the one-day challenge will feature 14 different events for companies of any size and athletes of any skill level. It will provide participants the chance to connect with other local companies through a blend of competition and collaboration.

“The Community Cup is a great way to build in-person camaraderie with your work colleagues and connect with other local businesses and non-profits,” Logan said. “To see businesses of so many different sizes and shapes come together on a summer Friday is always a thrill.” 
Logan said there are four divisions based on team size, with 14 events that offer something for everyone with a diverse set of challenges that mix competition and wellness. Events will include:
