The course for the 104th incarnation of this traditional holiday run/walk has been changed from the standard jaunt through Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky — runners and walkers will now pass by new additions and historic sites and neighborhoods in the Cincinnati area.
Fountain Square is on the course as is the new Horseshoe Casino and Over-the-Rhine, allowing participants to view the community changes happening there. Plus there will be food, live music and more at the finish line to tide you over ’til Thanksgiving dinner. The race benefits nonprofits in the area including Neediest Kids of All and the Ronald McDonald House.
Race begins at 9 a.m. Thursday; register online or in person on race day. $35 to race, free to watch. Race leaves from Paul Brown Stadium, Downtown, thanksgivingdayrace.com.
