About This Activity

This is Race #1 of the Run the Land Series with Race #2 in April of 2021. Race #1 will focus on West Side courses for the Full, Half, 10k, and 5k and Race #2 will take runners to the East Side for all the distances. All Race #1 attendees will receive a 50% discount to the April event. 

As the saying goes, Running Isn't Canceled. This running weekend brings an in-person, hybrid event to the roads and paths around Cleveland with a dose of friendly rivalry. 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 Half Marathon, and Full Marathon courses. This is a rules of the road run 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 groups no larger than 10 and in intervals every 5 minutes starting at 10am. 

How the Starting Corrals Work

Runners will start every 5 minutes from starting points all over the city. The Full and Half will start at the corner of E13th and Superior. The 10k will start in Gordon Square. The 5k will start at Lincoln park in Tremont.

Why is the Run $50

This is a hybrid, in-person marathon designed by runners, for runners, and giving back to Greater Cleveland charities. This run is $50 for many reasons; the swag is awesome, the run is tracked and timed with prizes, 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 a professional-grade, high intensity run that will bring a positive impact to the greater Cleveland area.
