Get ready to add some sizzle to your summer! The Lakewood Summer Meltdown, sponsored by Melt Bar & Grilled and presented by LakewoodAlive, is back for its eighth year on Saturday, July 8 from 4-10 p.m with the ever-popular evening 5K race through Lakewood's historic neighborhoods.
The Summer Meltdown represents one of the region's most highly-anticipated street parties. A "something for everyone" event, the Meltdown offers seemingly endless recreation opportunities, including a 5K race, 1 Mile Kids Fun Run, beer garden, street festival, outdoor activities, games, food vendors, live music and more. Where else can you run a race that ends at a beer garden?
The ever-popular Meltdown 5K, sponsored by Cleveland Clinic Lakewood, draws hundreds of participants annually, as it features a fast course, chip timing, a fashionable t-shirt for participants and prizes for top finishers. Both this running event and the 1 Mile Kids Fun Run, sponsored by Lakewood Family YMCA, afford participants a rare opportunity to partake in an evening race
