Rite Aid Cleveland 10K Running and Walking Divisions

*Please Note: The 10K is now on Saturday, May 16.

In an effort to streamline our weekend events, we have moved the 10K to Saturday. The change will assist with alleviating issues with the start corrals on Sunday. The 10K will still be a premier event and will now be a part of the Challenge Series, creating additional levels for participants to choose from. Please stay tuned for additional details.

NOW ON SATURDAY, 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.
