2018 Winter Wonderland Run Results

Here are race results from the 2018 Winter Wonderland Run on Sunday January 22 at Fernbank Park. Due to a missed turnaround, actual distance ended up being about 3.70 Miles for the race. We threw out any time under 24 minutes based on the possibility of running 3.7 miles on the course in its current condition especially with the nature trail featuring snow and ice. (Last year's top time would have been 24:33 for 3.7 miles in better course conditions).
Full results should be posted on our website  www.cincinnatirunning.com later this week.  If you have a question, please contact us at cincinnatirunning@gmail.com.
