Run and Discover OTR
The Triple Crown is a series of races: The Hyde Park Blast, Downtown Dash and the OTR 5K. It starts with the OTR 5K Summer Celebration, which is a week from tomorrow. It was created 6 years ago to highlight the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood. It starts in the Gateway Quarter on Vine Street, where you can definitely see major development. Seemingly a new restaurant, bar, or business opens every month. Many of these will be serving up bites during the celebration after the run. The OTR 5K raises money or the OTR Chamber of Commerce. The Gateway Quarter isn't the only place that is seeing major development in OTR. The Washington Park is undergoing major renovation and the nearly 500 spot parking garage is already done. Many of the old beautiful building are being transformed into hip urban condos. In fact Pleasant Street is a beautiful street lined with great places in which to live. Pleasant Street used to be one of the most dangerous in the city. I encourage you to run the OTR 5K or take part in the celebration after the race. It's going to be a great way to discover OTR and right now there's a lot to discover.
