Join the Cleveland West Road Runners for the 46th running of the Fall Classic 1/2 marathon and 5K at Bonnie Park on Saturday, November 20th at 9:00a.m. Over the past 4+ decades, thousands of runners have enjoyed this fast, scenic course run entirely in the beautiful Cleveland Metroparks.
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. The Overall winner, first Master and first Grand Master receive awards along with top 3 in each age group (mug with logo). Laser engraved wood coaster will be given to all Half Marathon finishers. All children 14 & under will be given medals in the 5K. Fantastic pullover will be included for first 800 paid registrations (adult sizes only). Children 14 & under running free do NOT receive a pullover unless purchased separately.
