Celebrate Summer Running Series
The Celebrate Running Series is a low cost series of running races held throughout the summer. Each race offers a unique take on training, running and racing. Whether you want a timed training run or want to go for that PR, the Celebrate Summer Running Series has the race for you.
The Celebrate Summer Running Series follows the Cincinnati Half Marathon's policy of no frills racing. No frills racing means that entry fees are as low as we can make them. An affordable, flat and fast race without frills DOES NOT mean that the quality of the race suffers.
The Celebrate Summer Running Series offers:
Simply put, we want to focus our resources on a top quality race experience and pass the savings on to you.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE TSHIRT POLICY
Not everybody wants a Tshirt. Why pay for a Tshirt if you don't want one? When you enter you do not automatically get a Tshirt with your entry. You must purchase the Tshirt separately. We are passing the savings on to you by only supplying shirts to those that want them.
Make sure you enter by the tshirt deadline if you want a shirt. Tshirts may be available for sale at each race for $12.
Registration is online only (multiple links are throughout this site). Registration price goes up as we get closer to the race. Please see active.com for registration price while online registration is open.
Online registration closes at Noon on Friday before the race. Please be advised that the entry fee goes up for race day registration as well.
