From the starting line in downtown Cincinnati at the corner of 5th and Broadway Streets, runners start the race first with a long, out-and-back stretch that unfolds within sight of the waters of the Ohio River flowing by, as runners make their way along the Columbia Parkway. The last few miles of the course actually take runners through two states, as the race heads down toward Pete Rose Way and then across the Purple People Bridge into Kentucky.
