Cincinnati is suitated on the north side of the Ohio River and across the border from Kentucky. Downtown Cincinnati is marked by Fountain Square, at the heart of the Central Business District. Kroger, Macy’s, The E.W. Scripps Company, Fifth Third Bank and Proctor & Gamble are all headquartered downtown. The highlight of running in downtown Cincinnati is along the miles of riverfront running routes, including several bridges from downtown over the Ohio River across to Covington and Newport in Northern Kentucky. Other Cincinnati running highlights include extensive Eden Park, Devou Park, and the University of Cincinnati campus. We also love running around Otto Arlmleder Park, on the Mill Creek Greenway, and further north, the extensive Winton Woods. There are also some lovely residential neighborhoods for running in Cincinnati. For a longer distance run, one good option is the Little Miami Scenic Trail, which follows the outline of the Little Miami river for up to 78 miles northeast to Springfield.
There is a reasonably good bus system in Cincinnati, but anything outside of downtown will generally require a car.
