Being an ambassador for the Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon is such an honor, and I am thankful to have been part of this great organization for the past 4 years! Many positive race changes have happened over that time period – improved start and finish areas, addition of the west side on the marathon course, better expo facility, and increased crowd support to name a few. I feel the CLE marathon is really trying to take into account participant feedback to provide the best race experience it can. Getting to know many of the race coordinators over the years and developing a friendship with them, it’s easy to see they pour their hearts into the race. Their passion for the event and the City of Cleveland is evident. I only wish the City would reciprocate those feelings and be more supportive of its hometown race. Marathon weekend is a chance to showcase everything fabulous about Cleveland, and it should take full advantage of this.
My love for the CLE marathon runs deep, and I’m excited to share the love with you. As an ambassador, I was given a complimentary entry for myself and one to give away to a lucky reader! Now’s your chance to run CLE for free! The free entry is for the race of your choice (the 5K or 8K on Saturday, May 14 or the 10K, half marathon, or full marathon on Sunday, May 15). It does not cover the Challenge Series and cannot be used to reimburse your race fees if you already registered. However, if you haven’t signed up yet and want to run, here’s how to enter. Please note you have four chances to enter the giveaway.
