McDonald's Kids Run Course Description & Maps:

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

This non-competitive event is held on Second Street and is started in "waves" by age group. For ages 5-11, McDonald's Half K Kids Run: start at 8:35 am
The loop course is a quarter K for ages 5-11. The loop course on second street allows the children to start and finish at the official start and finish lines and under the race 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 Mom and Dad!

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.
