2016 Fall Classic
November 20, 2016
Bonnie Park, Metroparks, Strongsville
1/2 marathon and 5K
Join the Cleveland West Road Runners for the 41st running of the Fall Classic 1/2 marathon and 5K. Over the past 4+ decades, thousands of runners have enjoyed this fast scenic course run entirely in the beautiful Cleveland Metroparks. Be sure to take advantage of early registration and to not miss out on your chance to be a part of this exciting event. The race sold out in 2015 so sign up now and lock in your place.
The course is a double loop, flat, fast course mostly on the scenic valley parkway road and the 1/2 marathon course is USATF certified. The race is capped at 1000 runners. To keep the impact at a minimum to the Cleveland Metroparks we encourage everyone to carpool. Parking is at the RTA parking lot at the corner of Rt. 80 entrance and Pearl Road.
Walkers are welcome with an early start time at 08:15 a.m. The Half Marathon kicks off at 09:00 a.m. and the 5K will begin at 09:15 a.m.
The race is chip timed. Following the race there will be chili from Applebee's for all runners and other goodies. The Overall winner, first Master and first Grand Master receive awards (one male and one female is each category) along with top 3 in each age group. Medals will be given to all Half Marathon finishers. All children 14 & under will be given medals in the 5K. Long sleeve technical performance fabric shirts will be included for first 800 paid registrations (adult sizes only). Children 14 & under running free do NOT receive a shirt unless purchased separately.
