10K Running and Walking Divisions
The Rite Aid Cleveland 10K, like the other races features a relatively fast and flat course, great volunteer support and a scenic view of downtown Cleveland and some of its most beautiful suburbs. The course has been designed for our athletes to enjoy views of Lake Erie and many other Cleveland highlights.
All 10K runners and walkers will receive a Virtual Race Bag, a short-sleeved cotton T-shirt, and a spinning guitar finishers medal!
The top 3 male and female finishers in each age group will receive an award that will be mailed post-race.
In order to compete in the walking division, you will be expected to walk the entire distance; completion of the course is on the honor system. The overall top 5 male and female finishers will receive an award that will be mailed post-race.
If you win an award and did not walk the entire route, you will be expected to inform the race officials in order to move you into 10K running division.
Course Time Limits
The Rite Aid Cleveland 10K route is secured by City officials who are obligated to maintain traffic flow and re-open street closures within a reasonable and set time frame on race day.
The 10K course will be open for 2.5 hours. All 10K participants, both runners and walkers, must be at various checkpoints along the route in order to maintain the proper pace to ensure completing within the 2.5-hour time frame. Please note: Time based on clock time.
