The Monkey Half Marathon

Saturday October 8th, 2022 

Course Description

The Monkey Half Marathon is a beautiful out and back 13.1 mile race that takes our participants along the scenic Little Miami River Trail just as the leaves begin to change with the arrival of fall. The Little Miami River Trail and then entire race is run on asphalt.

The course is USATF certified and is an excellent opportunity for folks aiming to get a new PR. It would be difficult to find a course much flatter than the Monkey. 

Finally, the race starts and finishes at the locally famous Monkey Bar situated right next to the Little Miami River. That post race cold beverage has never been closer!
