Results

The 2011 run and party was enjoyed by many with the start and finish taking place at the Christian Moerlein Brewery located in the heart of Over-The-Rhine. As a result of the successful turn out the decision was made to move the 2012 start and party to the event lawn to better accommodate our event. Due to the growing participation, the 2014 event will take place in the same location as last year.
