We will start in the center of Cleveland, in front of the old HIGBEES building where the movie was filmed! The 5K and 10K races start right in the middle of Public Square, on Superior Street. The 5K will run to the A Christmas Story House & Museum. The 10K will run to the House and back to the original starting area at Public Square. For the 5K runners, buses will be transporting you back near the starting line on the right by Public Square!
The race route travels from Downtown to West 20th Street, to Abbey Avenue, then to West 14th Street. The route then travels through the heart of the Tremont District before turning onto Rowley Ave. with the 5K ending at the A Christmas Story House & Museum. The 10K continues around the block on a similar route back downtown and finishes at Public Square.
