The mission of the A Christmas Story Run is to provide a race that promotes health and fitness, stimulate the local economy and galvanize the community.  These events are made possible through corporate and foundation in-kind and financial support, close partnerships between the A Christmas Story House & Museum, Speedy Feet, Tremont West and the Downtown Cleveland Alliance.   Race proceeds benefit A Christmas Story House Foundation.


Both the 5K and 10K races start in Public Square near the Higbee Building (now JACK Casino) and the Terminal Tower. The 5K will run to the A Christmas Story House & Museum.  The 10K will run to the House and back to Public Square.  For the 5K runners, busses will be transporting you back to Public Square.
