Cincinnati Start Area

Course Tour

The start line of the full and half marathon is at the doorstep of Paul Brown Stadium, home field of Cincinnati’s professional football team, The Bengals. Gun time is 6:30am. Runners and walkers will head eastward toward the professional baseball stadium, Great American Ball Park, home of the Cincinnati Reds. This approximately 1 mile trip offers some great spectator vantage points. The section of the Cincinnati riverfront between the two ball parks is known as the Banks that contains Smale Riverfront Park which, along with the historic Roebling Suspension Bridge, provide some great overheard views of the course below. Spectators can even enjoy a special Flying Pig breakfast buffet at the Moerlein Lager House as they wait for their favorite participant.
