The OTR 5k Run/Walk and Summer Celebration began in 2007 with a group of friends, residents of Over-the-Rhine and members of the Over-the-Rhine Chamber of Commerce, as a way to invite Cincinnatians to see the Renaissance that was beginning in the neighborhood. The 5k Run/Walk started and finished on Vine Street followed by a day-long celebration on the corner of 12th & Vine.  Only a handful of new businesses were on Vine Street at the time.
