5K/10K Race Results!


Epilepsy Association’s 2019 Race the River 10K, 5K and 1.5 Mile race is back for another morning of running and relaxing along the river at Merwin's Wharf! Our seventh annual race consists of three distances to fit your preference and will be bib-chip timed! The route will follow the new, paved, all-purpose trails along the Cuyahoga River making it one of the best views in the flats of downtown Cleveland. All proceeds from the race will go directly to our agency’s local programs and services which assist those affected by epilepsy in Northeast Ohio.
