Race Information

Registration fees and all donations benefit the non-profit Moreland Hills 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.  These 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.

Join the scenic and competitive 5K through the valley, now part of the Hermes Road Race Series.  But you don’t have to be a runner to enjoy this event!  Experience the trails of Forest Ridge Preserve on the family-friendly hike — take your time to enjoy these beautiful woodlands on a route that will be fun and interesting for kids of all ages!
