EVENT: Smells like victory. Run a 5K through one of the country's largest wastewater treatment plants June 14

You've never run a 5K like this before.

Join us June 14 for our second annual Cuyahoga River Clean Water Classic #CWC5K, a one-of-a-kind fundraising 5K run/walk through one of the largest wastewater treatment plants of its kind in the country, the Southerly Wastewater Treatment Center in Cuyahoga Heights.

UPDATE 6/20: RESULTS POSTED! Thanks to the dozens of you who joined us June 14. We have now posted all of our results: Overall / Female / Male

Proceeds benefit three local agencies—United Way, Community Shares, and the United Negro College Fund, partners in our annual Charity Choice campaign.

The 2013 Clean Water Classic was open to employees and their families, raising hundreds of dollars for three local charities, and this year's event is open to the public for the first time ever.

Print and complete a registration form and send it to the address noted at the bottom, making your check payable to the agency of your choice (United Way, Community Shares, and the United Negro College Fund).


The course is a 5K route through the grounds of the Southerly Wastewater Treatment Center, a working 288-acre plant just off I-77 in Cuyahoga Heights, and the adjacent Environmental & Maintenance Services Center. This map is also included in your registration form.
