About Daniel Boone's Run For Statehood Half Marathon & 5K

The runners who come out each summer to run the challenging, hilly course at the Daniel Boone’s Run For Statehood Half Marathon get a chance to see the beautiful countryside and rolling hills and mountains of the Northern Kentucky area.

Usually around several dozen to just over 100 runners come out each year for the race, which also includes a 5K run and a one-mile fun run.

Though Falmouth itself is very much a small town with just over 2,000 residents, the larger area is home to some 300,000 people, many of whom work and commute to the nearby Cincinnati, Ohio, area.

Shelby and Main Streets



Playfully described by organizers as a course that’s “flatter than Pike’s Peak,” the race takes runners along the hilly country roads and city streets in and around Falmouth, along an out-and-back course that starts and finishes at the intersection of Shelby and Main Streets in Falmouth.

In contrast to the 13.1-mile half marathon course, the event’s 5K and one-mile races take place along a mostly flat course, organizers from the local Pendleton Pacesetters Country Club.

When they participate in the race, runners get a chance to see a community that’s in renewal, as the town of Falmouth has been the site of significant natural disasters over the past few decades, mostly from flooding that has occurred from the rising of the Licking River, which runs past the center of town.
