2015 Race Schedule

Cleveland is lucky to have many local races throughout the year. Here are a few places to look for races, in no particular order (if you have a place that isn’t listed please leave it in the comments below, just remember Cleveland area)

Hermes Cleveland-This is one of my favorites, they put on some of the best races in the area in my opinion.

Peace Racing-Dan and his crew are giving Hermes some friendly competition at Peace Racing. They put on over 15 events a year, running and triathlons included.

Summit Athletic Running Club-They put on a few popular races a year, the Shamrock 15K, Buckeye Half Marathon and the Great NYE Race.

HMA Promotions-Putting on over 40 races a year, mostly on the eastside of Cleveland.

Cleveland West Road Runners-Only 4 races a year but all good ones.

Western Reserve Racing-Mostly trail races and longer distances but also have the dirty trail series that seems to be popular. Trail running is not my favorite as I like to run fast and safely. I do not enjoy getting stuck in the mud, running through rivers or tripping on tree roots.

NCN Racing-They’ve been cutting down on their races lately but still have some good ones on the list.
