Do you enjoy a good walk or run? Do you enjoy helping community schools? Then the first annual Edgewater 5k Run/Walk may be just what you’re looking for. This event will be held on Sunday, September 28th and registration is already un-der way.
The route begins at Granville and Kenmore and heads east to Sheridan Road, where it turns south to provide runners the chance to run in the street dwarfed by high rises on either side. The route turns east at Ardmore to the northern edge of the scenic lakefront path, heading south past Kathy Osterman Beach and more high-rises (including Park Tower) to Foster Beach. The path then rounds the concession area before returning back. Runners can gather post-race for snacks or brunch, or wander to Granville Avenue for the Edgewater Fall Art Fair, featuring over 90+ artists, two stages and a beer garden.
The timed 5K run starts at 8AM. The 5K Run/Walk starts at 8:15. The 5K Run/Walk with your dog starts at 8:30. The cost to register now is $40; after August 3rd, the cost will be $45. $5 of your registration fee goes to the Edgewater school of your choice. You can register online by clicking here.
