Lick Run Storm Water 5K

The South Fairmount Community Council and the Metropolitan Sewer District of Greater Cincinnati are excited to co-host the annual Stormwater 5K and Festival at the Lick Run Greenway on Sunday, September 26th.  Enjoy the scenery of this brand-new urban park and stream as you complete the 5K around the nation’s largest green infrastructure project and receive a commemorative medal.  

The 5K will be used to raise funds for the South Fairmount Community Council, a non-profit organization, and to raise awareness 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. 

Unable to make it on the 26th? This race this year will be hybrid, so you can complete the 5K on your own time and have a medal sent to you. Not big on doing a 5K? No worries! Meet environmental organizations from around Cincinnati at the simultaneous Stormwater Festival being held at the Greenway as well. The 5K will run from 9AM to 2PM, and the Festival from 10AM to 2PM.  The registration fee for the 5K is $30 per person and can be paid at https://runsignup.com/Race/OH/Cincinnati/LickRunStormwater5k.
