New Date: TBD
The Ault Park Switchback has been postponed due to the current health crisis.
As we know more, we will contact you.
Ault Park is one of the most frequently used parks in Cincinnati. Its intricate network of trails is one of the City's best kept secrets.

The Ault Park Switchback will start with a short loop around the soccer field, near the pavilion, before entering the woods. Once on the trail, runners will enjoy a rolling route, going down by the old railroad trestle, and even spending some time on the old pioneer road from the late 1700's. Networking through Ault's web of trails, the 3.6 mile course will come back up to the pavilion and then finish back at the soccer field. This course features many twists and turns with a few hills mixed in for good measure.
Individual Event Awards:

You must be present to win any random drawing and you cannot accept for someone else, so stick around!

We will have a variety of treats for you.
Registration Fee: $15 Pre-registration per race. Late registration, when offered, will be $17. It was determined that not enough folks were pre-registering so the race day fee was raised to $20 to "encourage" pre-registration.

Once again, this year's race will be chip timed with Ipico shoe tags. All Times will be read electronically. You do not have to have a tag to participate but you must have a tag to receive a time. To receive a time, you must properly attach shoe tag to your shoe. No tag, no time! Shoe tags will be distributed on race-day only. Tags are re-useable and will be collected at the finish line. If you are given a tag, you must agree to return it for reuse. Check out the video to see how to properly attach your timing chip.
