The Midnight Madness Marathon - The Greater Cincinnati area's newest marathon plus more!

Midnight Madness is not just a marathon!  Run a marathon relay, half marathon, 10K or 5K.  This is truly a running party to end all parties!

The start time for the Midnight Madness Marathon and Marathon Relay is 7pm.  Start time for the Half Marathon and 10K is 7:30pm. 

In between your finish and the Awards Ceremony cheer on your relay teammates, enjoy a cold beer from Municipal Brew Works or dance (if you can!) to some great music. 

How does this Midnight Madness Marathon work?  Runners run 4 loops of approximately 6.55 miles. 

The Marathon will do 4 loops, the Half Marathon 2 loops, 10K does 1 loop and the 5K will be 1/2 loop.  With plenty of aid stations and lots of support, expect some fast finish times.

The course is a USATF course and will count for qualifying times.

In addition to individual races, the Midnight Madness Marathon is offering 2, 4 and 6 person marathon relays.  What could be better than going to a party on Saturday night where you get to run, drink beer and listen to some great tunes? Hang out with hundreds of your closest friends and see our relay page for specific relay information and maps.
