AGAIN THIS YEAR! We have a single person kayak division, and a walking division. The Kayak Division is designed for those who wish to race individually without a partner. Participants in the Kayak Division can bring their own or use a Morgan kayak, the price is the same. There are two Kayak Divisions – Kayak Walk and Kayak Run.
In the walking division, you are still a two person team, but one or both participants can walk and be timed with other walkers. We hope these new divisions will enable Morgan’s Little Miami Triathlon to be a more versatile event for all involved.
There is now a Run/Walk Division, where one runs and one walks.

Good Day my running friends. The winter cold days are here (see my time-line for post regarding low 20″s running) and it’s really tough to get motivated to get out there at 5:30AM on those days BUT it is very necessary and important to continue a solid running or exercise routine. So if anyone wants to join me in this excruciating effort please let me know. I’m willing to meet you on your side of town in the early AM mornings. just looking for some motivation. Good luck in your winter routine. Go ahead and chime in on this topic on our Facebook group page.
The Straight Street Hill Climb™, the most grueling sub-mile race on the planet, is scheduled for Sunday Nov. 18. Begun some 36 years ago by the Clifton Track Club, the oxygen-depleting sprints up the city’s steepest inclines is back and so is the bike challenge.
The races are a fundraising event for the Cincinnati Soap Box Derby, which usually directs its efforts at going fast downhill.
“It’s two minutes of self-inflicted torture!” said Doug Newberry, president of the Cincinnati Soap Box Derby, referring to the average winning time for the running event.
The Soap Box Derby will award the prestigious King of the Hill trophy to the fastest runner and cyclist for the day.
Registration fee for the event is $10, or $20 with a race T-shirt. The single entry fee allows you to run or pedal up the hill — or both — if you want to do “The Double”

Unlike that horrible high school history, the Thanksgiving Day Race history is outrageously fun. We highly recommend that your training program include some reading!From the event’s first step in 1908 with a few men in skippy shorts, to the misstep in 1924 when the whole race came to a complete halt for a passing streetcar, to the first women’s step in 1970, to an Olympic step—four runners became Olympians, to a heroic step when a 16 year old saved a man’s life at mile 5.There are over 100 fast stories compiled by our race historian and turkey day runner himself, Jim Pleshinger.
Our sponsorship keeps this event healthy every Thanksgiving Day.
Please visit these businesses and thank them for their continued support.
