Half Marathon Course Description

The half marathon starts with the full marathon and relay field and goes through Cincinnati, Newport, and Covington. The two groups will run together for approximately nine miles; then, the half marathon field will turn back toward downtown and end at the Marathon finish line.

The course will close on a continuous pace of 16:00 minutes per mile. Anyone who cannot maintain the 16:00 minute per mile pace must move to the sidewalk as the course closes to allow regular traffic through. Participant services cannot be guaranteed for participants beyond the 16:00 minute per mile pace.

  • Minimum age for Half Marathon: 14 years old on race day
