The 6.55 mile course on the beautiful Rocky River Reservation will be a speedy out and back route on pavement and considered a fantastic "training race" for the Hermes Cleveland 10-Miler in April.

There will even be an incentive to "pick up the pace" the second half of the race.

Not in contention for speedy award but want extra motivation to "pick up the pace"? 

Any participant who runs a negative split will be entered into win special prizes after the race. A negative split is when a participant runs faster the 2nd half (3.27 miles) of the race than the first.


How do you know if I ran a faster 2nd half than first?

A split-point timing mat will be placed at the half way mark for runners to be tracked on the front & back half of the race - accurate live results will be produced after each runner has finished.
