The Fifty West Mile, formerly the Little Kings Mile, kicks off Flying Pig Marathon weekend and is the second leg of the TQL Beer Series, the three-race event celebrating Cincinnati’s rich brewing history and benefiting the Over-the-Rhine Brewery District. Everyone is invited to take part in the Fifty West Mile, whether you walk or run.

The Fifty West Mile course starts on W. Pete Rose Way, just west of Paul Brown Stadium. The course goes around the stadium along Cincinnati’s riverfront, and ends near the Anderson Pavilion. After you finish the race, join us on the lawn at Smale Riverfront Park, where you’ll find food, a variety of Fifty West beers and a great after-party!



The event includes an elite field with prize money for the top three overall male and female finishers. For more information on participating as an elite, please click here.

Packet pickup will open on the east plaza level of Paul Brown Stadium starting at 5:00 p.m. The start line on W. Pete Rose Way near Longworth Hall is approximately a half mile walk from packet pickup.



The post-race party will take place at Smale Riverfront Park. Participants will again be welcomed to the party with beer from Fifty West Brewing Company and Skyline Chili Cheese Coneys.


The TQL Beer Series benefits the Over-The-Rhine Brewery District Community Urban Redevelopment Corporation. It is a non-profit organization committed to making the Brewery District a healthy, balanced and supportive neighborhood economy by preserving, restoring and redeveloping our unique brewing history and historic urban fabric. The Cincinnati Brewing Heritage Trail is the organization’s signature plan, highlighting the historic buildings that helped create Cincinnati’s rich brewing history.


  • All registered participants will receive a shirt, two Fifty West Brewing Company beer tickets and a Skyline Chili Cheese Coney (must be redeemed at the Post-Race Party)
  • Timing chip: the timing chip is included on your bib. For those participating in the series, a finish time is needed to be eligible for Brew Hog status.
  • The Fifty West Mile finishers will receive a medal that doubles as a bottle opener!
  • There is no baggage claim for the Fifty West Mile.

We need thousands of volunteers to help at our events over Flying Pig Marathon weekend. Email Claudia Heidelman at claudia@flyingpigmarathon.com for more information.
