Sunset Sprint 5K/10K

IMPORTANT RACE UPDATE

5K UPDATE

Due to recent health and social distancing mandates set forth by the State of Ohio, our race is now restricted to 150 participants per 5K and 10K race. In order to accommodate these safety measures, we have adjusted the start time for the 5K.

The new race day schedule is as follows:

  • 5K – 5:45pm START
  • 10K – 6:30pm START (remains the same)

While adjusting the start time of the LIVE 5K was not an easy decision, the health and well-being of all our attendees is our top priority.

10K UPDATE

Considering permitting changes due to recent health mandates, the 10K course will take place entirely within lower and upper Edgewater Park. Please see the updated race route below:

UPDATED 10K RACE ROUTE

If you have any questions or concerns with the adjusted 5K schedule or 10K race route, please contact us directly at nneroni@hermescleveland.com or 216.623.9933.
