FREE Parking

There are over 5000 free parking spots available in the surface parking lots by Paul Brown Stadium. They are gobbled up really fast (just like you run)!  It pays to get there early and fast. If you miss them, the race recommends that you park in any of the lots downtown. Fountain Square might be your best option if you have to get home to your turkey dinner.

The Perfect Bib Tag Timing

The tag is a small device which will be attached to your race number to record your net time. It doesn't matter if you start at the back of the pack, walk the race, or get squished at the start. The tag will start your official time when you cross the computer pads at the starting line, and stop when you cross the finish line. Your results will be online.

Volunteer Opportunities

If you can't run or walk, how about volunteering? It's so much fun. There's registration, water stations, party set-up and finish line marshals and more. Send us an email using the Contact Form.

Finish Line Celebration

Post Race party is at Paul Brown Stadium. Music and food will be on the plaza level at Paul Brown Stadium. Enjoy lots of Kroger snacks, Dasani Water,lots of Coke products and much more. Live band "Navitiy Code" will be entertaining us.
