About the event

Lick Run STORMWATER 5k - 2022 

The Lick Run STORMWATER 5K Run/Walk is an annual 5K run/walk around the Lick Run Greenway, Cincinnati's newest urban recreational area in the South Fairmount neighborhood. The inaugural event was in 2021.

The 2022 race will be timed. The run is on paved path/sidewalk through the Lick Run Greenway. The course is partly flat and partly gentle uphill/downhill incline.

On the surface, the Lick Run Greenway looks like a park with a stream running through it, but it’s also a stormwater management project that helps control sewer overflows into the Mill Creek.

The Lick Run Stormwater 5k started in 2021 to introduce runners to the newly constructed Lick Run Greenway, a major stormwater infrastructure and recreation project. It will once again be used to raise funds for the South Fairmount Community Council, a non-profit organization, and to raise awarness of the importance of water quality and flood control for urban communities. 

This race was inspired by the dedicated and involved people of South Fairmount to attract people from inside and outside the community, educate them on the benefits of healthy neighborhoods and stormwater management, and raise funds to provide services for the residents through their local Community Council. Fortunately, an opportunity to bring awareness to the South Fairmount neighborhood coincides with a project focused on climate change and water quality, with the intentional impact of improving the environment of the neighborhood. 

So go ahead - take a walk around the neighbohood. And while you're at it, register for the STORMWATER 5k and get a medal for your efforts.

All you need to do is:
