The Most Cincinnati Race Ever
Here’s Why We LOVE the Race
For 113 years, over 12,000 happy people—families, friends, neighbors, colleagues—fill Downtown Cincinnati to run, walk, trot, and dance their way through a beautiful 10k on Thanksgiving morning. The standing-room-only-crowd is never in a hurry to finish!
Here are the top reasons to register today:
• The course, of course!
It’s the only 10k course that has three cities, two states, and two rivers bundled together in one memorable event. It captures the best of Cincinnati—The Banks, Fountain Square, OTR, Great American Ball Park, Paycor Stadium, and Smale Park—the best of Newport, and more highlights in Covington.
• The special gift bags for everyone.
The ProAmpac swag bag is stuffed with Cincinnati favorites—Tide®, Pepto Bismol®, Secret®, Gain®, Bounty®, PopCorners, running gloves, cooling towel, an optional long sleeve t-shirt, and more. It’s fun stuff!
• Packet pick-up at Fleet Feet O’Bryonville.
Five days of fun at the best running store in Cincinnati—easy parking, amazing customer service, prizes, and people. It’s a great party and there’s a big sale, too
• The beautiful people.
You’ll remember your friends and family more than your finish time! Generations of families are always there, along with celebrities—Governor Mike DeWine, Fran DeWine, Olympians. But the real highlight is the diverse group of old and young, fit and not-so-fit, happy, and happier
Oh, What Fun It is to Run with Everyone!
Something wonderful is about to happen: The 113th Western & Southern Thanksgiving Day Run. Just imagine—if you still can—a big, beautiful Cincinnati starting line filled with your entire family and thousands of friends. Go Cincinnati Go!
