I love that Cincinnati offers a 10k on Thanksgiving morning. It is a great race distance to run before the big feast. The course is relatively flat and takes you through the Central Business District, Newport, Covington, and OTR. There are a lot of pretty landmarks to see along the way!

I loved this race! 2019 was my first year participating in the Queen Bee and I already have it on my calendar for 2020. This was the best half marathon course I have been on. The incline in the beginning made those final miles even sweeter because it was a flat coast to the end. Running towards the city for the final miles was such as nice view. I loved all of the motivational signs along the way, especially the quotes by famous women on mile 12. This race was all about girl power! The swag was so cute and generous! I wear my sparkly long sleeve tech shirt all the time and it was so nice to receive a Sweaty Band before the race and a Winter headband for finishing. The recovery area had lots of great snacks and the PR bell was placed so you got the river in the background of your photos – such a fun shot! Overall Queen Bee weekend was so enjoyable and the course made it easy to pace the race.

Difficult course for miles 5-9, but the energy throughout the city makes it so fun! The Flying Pig offers a race for runners at all levels and the expo is second to none. A great way to see Cincinnati and get your miles in!

If you are new to half marathon running, this course is a great one to try. Since it is on the air force base, it is essentially flat, but that also means there is not a lot to look at.
