Sign Up for a Fun 5K at Union Terminal With HHC, Cincinnati Museum Center

Ready to run or walk at one of Cincinnati's most iconic landmark? Join us for the Upstander 5K, brought to you by the Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center in partnership with Cincinnati Museum Center, on Sunday, June 12 at 8:30 a.m.

The Upstander 5K takes runners and walkers on a scenic route around historic Union Terminal and throughout the West End neighborhood. This fun event supports HHC's Cincy Upstander Project, which aims to inspire our community to become upstanders through a city-wide art campaign, monthly programs, museum tours, and training opportunities.

"In the past, the Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center has hosted the Great Human Race 5K. Now, we’re excited to bring the Upstander 5K to the heart of Cincinnati at Union Terminal!" said Sarah L. Weiss, Chief Executive Officer of HHC. "We hope runners and walkers will enjoy a beautiful course, enjoy breakfast and music, and even visit some of our world-class museums afterward."

Walkers and runners will enjoy a post-race party outside of Union Terminal with live music and complimentary breakfast including Marx bagels and drinks.

Children, ages 3-12, are welcome to participate in the Upstander Kids Sprint prior to the 5K Race Start. They can walk or run in the 5K free of charge, without a bib, following the Kids Sprint. Children, ages 13 and up, are required to register for the 5K Race.

All paid participants will receive a complimentary t-shirt while supplies last. Register today!

Union Terminal is home to the Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center – an award-winning museum and nonprofit that examines the Holocaust through its local connection. Union Terminal is the site where numerous Holocaust survivors arrived by train to rebuild their lives in Cincinnati. Using innovative storytelling, interactive experiences, and genuine artifacts, visitors witness the strength and courage of the human spirit set against the backdrop of one of the darkest chapters in human history.

The museum incorporates media, artifacts, art, and interactive exhibitions to share this history and its lessons. It also includes the Humanity Gallery where visitors explore moments, meeting individuals who activated their character strengths to become upstanders and bring change to our community and world. HHC is one of eight museums in the world to add a virtual intelligence exhibit called Dimensions in Testimony. Using specialized recording and display technologies and next-generation natural language processing, Dimensions in Testimony allows visitors to ask two-dimensional displays of Holocaust survivors questions and receive responses in real time.
