Western & Southern Thanksgiving Day TQL 5K and 10K Run/Walk Facts
The Big Day:
Thursday, November 23, 2023 at TQL Stadium
- The 10k and TQL 5k Run/Walk will start together at 9am.
- ProAmpac Kids Fun Run (ages 5-10) at 8:30am.
Two New Courses and One Big Finish!
The W & S 10k has a brand-new course all in Cincinnati with a start and finish at TQL Stadium! And more good news, when Total Quality Logistics (TQL) heard about the new race headquarters at TQL Stadium, they jumped on board to sponsor a new, shorter race—the TQL 5k—to make the event bigger and better for more runners and walkers. Now everyone can do it all—run, and walk, and still make it home in plenty of time for turkey and pumpkin pie.
Strollers are allowed for both the W&S 10k and the TQL 5k.
We only ask that they line up in the back of the line for safety reasons.
NO DOGS on the course.
