Rain doesn't dampen this year's Heritage Run

The annual Bay Village Foundation Heritage 5K run/1-mile walk began under cloudy skies on Oct. 18 at Cahoon Memorial Park. More than 300 walkers and runners registered and the first 300 participants received a cool, dry-tech T-shirt. Funds collected from fees and the sponsorships of local businesses will support private, non-sectarian community projects. 

The event was chaired by trustees Tim Atkinson and Steve Lee. Board members were available at 7:30 a.m. to register walkers and runners and to distribute packets and some of the best goodie bags in Northeast Ohio.

“Thanks to everyone for coming out to run for a good cause, rain or shine," said Atkinson. This year it was light rain, but the spirit of the racers was not dampened and the enthusiastic group pushed off on schedule at 9 a.m. To see complete results from the race, visit hermescleveland.com.
