New to this year: A fully supported 20 mile run! If you want the extra challenge, complete the 10k loop to make it a full marathon! Training for the Cleveland Marathon? Feeling bored with winter and want a little challenge? Or just generally a big fan of runs that finish with a craft beer? Whatever your reason, your spring tune up race is here for a live, hybrid event. New to the East Side edition, we will all be starting and finishing at the same point!  This is East Side vs West Side. This is a chance to train for something. This is a chance to Run The Land. 

About the Run:

Aid stations will be every 3 miles for the Marathon, Half Marathon, and 20 Mile courses. This is a rules of the road run on sidewalk meaning you must follow traffic laws but we picked courses that are beautiful, have minimal crossings, and are easy to follow. Runners will be timed using RaceJoy, an GPS tracking app, that will alert you if you are off course and give you an official finish time. Runners will start in small groups starting at 10am. 

This is more than a run.

This is a hybrid, in-person marathon designed by runners, for runners, and giving back to Greater Cleveland charities. This run is great for many reasons; the swag is awesome, the run is tracked and timed on a fully marked course, and most importantly, the funds get pumped right back into the community to help nonprofits that directly service C-L-E. We are putting our best foot forward on this one to put on an exciting run that will bring a positive impact to the greater Cleveland area.
