Walnut Hills is Miles 9+ – 11 of the half-marathon course. The marathon and half-marathon courses will have split with each route’s participants continuing on their respective ways. Walnut Hills is home to the gem of the City’s park system, Eden Park, which all participants experienced earlier in their journey during miles 6-8. The Gilbert Avenue section of the half-marathon is known for possibly the most spirited spots on either of the Flying Pig courses. This long avenue also offers some great spots for spectators to view the large half marathon field of participants. The Rt 4 Silverton-Blue Ash public transportation Metro bus will take riders to MLK & Gilbert, the corner opposite Harriet Beecher Stowe House.
