The Republic Masthead

Why I run: Max Hunt


Follow The Republic:


FROM: Indianapolis, but moved to Columbus two years ago.

OCCUPATION: Stay-at-home dad to two sons, ages 5 and 7.

WHY I RUN: I want to set a good example for my kids. My family was never very active growing up and we ate a lot of processed and fast foods. My dad passed away when I was just 24 from heart problems, and I want to be around longer than that for my two boys. This will be my first half-marathon — and hopefully their first kid’s race — and I want them to see me cross the finish line. Maybe we’ll be racing against each other in 25 years.

I hope so.

FAVORITE SONG TO RUN TO: “Can’t Hold Us” by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis

SHOES: Brooks Launch
