We are thrilled to offer this exciting new race to the local Northeast Ohio running community!

The Inaugural Hermes Half a Half Marathon, is set for Saturday, March 26th at the scenic Emerald Necklace Marina.

The 6.55 mile course on Rocky River Reservation is a speedy out and back route on pavement and is considered a fantastic "training race" or buildup to any upcoming endurance event - like the Hermes Cleveland 10-Miler in April.

There will even be an incentive to "pick up the pace" the second half of the race. 


This event is capped at 500 participants
