CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The American Heart Association's Heart Mini had to make some changes to the half-marathon route for Sunday's race.

Heart Mini announced Saturday that due to high water levels along the Ohio River, the Heart Half-Marathon course had to be adjusted to accommodate the safety of the participants.

According to the Heart Mini Facebook page, all half marathoners will gain the additional distance to reach 13.1 miles with a second turnaround on Columbia Parkway which will be located west of Torrence Parkway.

The re-route has been accurately measured per USA Track & Field standards.

Heart Mini says that only the Heart half-marathon will be affected by this change.  All other events will continue as planned on original courses.

The 15k Heart Mini and the Half-Marathon will start at 7:30 a.m. Sunday.
