As an avid runner, I make it a special point to thank the people that wake up early to support runners along the courses of our various races downtown. I think a VERY special shout out is in order for the musicians that line our race courses in the wee hours of the morning. In most cases, these are the people out playing shows until 2am.. So it is quite the task to load-in for your entertainment at 6am. This phenomenon of courses being lined with cheering people and musicians is unique to Cincinnati. The folks over at The Flying Pig Marathon have done a fantastic job of building a supportive culture along their routes!
The Hudepohl 14K and 7K Brewery Run is tomorrow morning (at 8am)! Here is a list of the artists lining the route to keep you going. Make sure you give them an extra thank you as you pass by!
