I have done it in awhile bit I did attend last years to spectate and I remember the weather being clear btu cold. Since it is Cincinnati, weather can be very unpredictable. I did it one year where the weather was 10 degrees, I missed it one year due to a dusting of overnight snow which tied up traffic and I could not get to the race and I also did it when the weather was 50 so you never know with the weather.
Typically about 2000 runners and walkers do this. The race used to hand out Jingle Bells for you to tie on your shoe but I do not know if they do this anymore.
There are a couple of groups that might get in costume. I do remember one year, a group of people dressed up as Santa and his reindeer and I believe for the last few years, a group tries to go as the longest caterpillar.
In regards to the course, it is quite flat except for the fact that you have to cross the Clay Wade Bailey Bridge twice which gives a little bit of a hilly dimension to the race.
