Rite Aid Cleveland 10K Running and Walking Divisions

*Please Note: The 10K is now on Saturday, May 16 and new start time for both 5K and 10K is 7:30 am

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.

10k running and walking divisions

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. The course has been designed for our athletes to enjoy views of Lake Erie and many other Cleveland highlights. The 10K route is USATF certified.
