Description

 

On Saturday, October 8th, join us for the 2022 Head for the Hills! event held in the heart of the Chagrin River valley.  Runner and hiker fees, plus all donations, benefit the non-profit Moreland Hills Parks Commission (“the Parks Commission”).  

This annual event provides the Parks Commission with its primary source of funds.  The Parks Commission’s mission is to support preservation, improvements, and enjoyment of our local parks for all.  Moreland Hills is home to many of the area’s most prized and pristine green spaces.  Those include the beautiful 142-acre Forest Ridge Preserve and the Lang Pavilion (where this event will take place); sections of Cleveland Metroparks South Chagrin Reservation; U.S. President James A. Garfield’s cabin and birth site; and more.

Registrants for the 5K run and 1.5-mile hike receive a free “Head For The Hills! 2022” shirt and other great give a-ways. For everyone else, there will be free activities like a family fun run/walk, kids scavenger hunt and crafts, silent auction, and more.

Come enjoy the beauty of the Chagrin River valley while supporting a great local cause.
