Heart Mini-Marathon expects 12,000 today




The Cincinnati Enquirer

        The Humana/ChoiceCare Heart Mini-Marathon kicks off this morning, with late registration at 7 on the first floor of the Convention Center, Fifth and Elm streets downtown.

        Races begin at 9 a.m. at Fountain Square, starting with the 5K HeartRun. Organizers expect 12,000 participants this year.

        The event raises more than $500,000 for the American Heart Association.

        Today from 11a.m. to 3:30p.m., the first floor of the Albert B. Sabin Cincinnati Convention Center will be transformed into a fitness clinic and will offer cholesterol testing, stroke assessments, EKGs and blood-sugar and blood-pressure screenings, all free to the public.

        “We're focusing on wellness,” said race director John Lonneman. “We're going to have a myriad of medical people and a panel of well-known physicians.”

        Look for Neil Schmidt's coverage of the Humana/ChoiceCare Heart Mini-Marathon and five pages of times and results in Monday's Enquirer.

        Event schedule: 5K Heart Run, 9 a.m.; 15K Mini-Marathon, 10 a.m.; Awards ceremony, 11:45 a.m.; HeartWalk, noon; Kids' 2K Mini-MaraFun, 12:30p.m.
