2022 Race Cancelled - Due to Construction

Unfortunately the Monkey Marathon events for 2022 must be cancelled due to construction occurring on the race route.  We apologize we had to make this decision.  We're looking forward to resuming the race(s) in 2023.

Participants registered for 2022 have two options:

  1. Defer your entry to 2023 (Expected date to be 10/7/2023) at no cost.
  2. Receive a refund for the 2022 event

All selections must be made by 4/30/2022.  Any participants who have not made a selection by 4/30/22 will automatically be deferred to the 2023 event and will not be eligible for a refund after that date.

Here Are Your Options:

We will transfer your registration to the new event date once it is set, and look forward to having you join us. Thanks for your patience!

We understand. We hope you can join us next time.

**Please note: Due to construction along the Little Miami Trail, we will have to cancel this year's race. We considered alternate paths but logistically, it just isn't going to work unfortunately. Anyone who has already registered will receive a full refund. Thank you for your support and we will be back in 2023!**

This year's event will take place October 8thh, 2022. Oh yeah, that flat and lightning fast (not to mention scenic thanks to the excellent fall foliage along the bike trail!) course we had last year? This super fast race IS CERTIFIED as an official Boston Qualifier this year!

Did we mention this race finishes at the iconic Monkey Bar along the Little Miami? So, after you sent a new personal best on our fast course, you will have a massive outdoor party waiting to celebrate you! This year, the finish will happen right by the bar's massive outdoor patio with live music and patrons cheering you home!

Once again this year, 100% of our net proceeds will be donated directly to the Ronald McDonald House Charity of Greater Cincinnati. For anyone not familiar with the incredible work they do, please learn more at

More details to come regarding some additional updates to this year's stay tuned!

Looking forward to seeing you out there for Cincinnati's flattest, fastest, and most fun Marathon!

Location: The Monkey Bar - 7837 Old 3C Hwy, Maineville, OH 45039
