A Christmas Story 5K-10K Run starts at 9:00 AM on Saturday, December 7th in Downtown Cleveland in front of Tower City at Ontario. The route travels from Downtown, across the Hope Memorial Bridge toward the West Side Market, down Abbey Ave, then to West 14th Street. Then the route makes its way through the heart of the Tremont District before turning onto Rowley Avenue and ending at the A Christmas Story House & Museum. The 10K continues on a similar route back, running through Duck Island, back to Downtown and finishes near the former Higbee Building at the corner of Ontario St. and Public Square.
Proceeds from the event benefit the A Christmas Story House Foundation. This non profit foundation maintains and restores the neighborhood surrounding the A Christmas Story House and Museum, in partnership with the Tremont West Development Corporation.
