McDonald's Half-K Kids Run Course Description & Maps:

The McDonald's Half-K Kids Run is a celebration of good health for children ages 5 to 12 years old.

It is a non-competitive fun run on Second Street starting at 8:30am at the official race start. Parents may walk and push strollers with the children.

The loop course on Second Street is a half K for the 5-12 year old. The flat and fast course will start and finish at the official start and finish lines of the 10k—so that all the children can be and finish with a flourish at the banners—just like Mom and Dad! The children will turn at the cones on Second Street so that the event is safe and allows for maximum cheering from fans everywhere.

Parents may walk and push strollers with the children.

FREE Parking

There are over 5000 free parking spots available in the surface parking lots by Paul Brown Stadium. They are gobbled up really fast (just like you run)!  It pays to get there early and fast. If you miss them, the race recommends that you park in any of the lots downtown. Fountain Square might be your best option if you have to get home to your turkey dinner.
