History

Since its inception in 2005, the Hermes Cleveland 10 Miler has grown to become the premier ten mile road race in Northeast Ohio. Each year, this outstanding race features over 2,000 runners and spectators.

This unique course takes competitors on a scenic journey that starts at Edgewater Park Upper Pavilion, then touring some of Cleveland’s historic neighborhoods finishing along the shores of Lake Erie at the newly renovated Lower Edgewater Park and the beach area!

Hermes Sports & Events is named after Hermes, the winged-footed messenger god of classical mythology. Hermes was the Son of Zeus and Maia, daughter of the Titan Atlas. He wore wings on his sandals as a sign of his swiftness. Hermes was a young athletic man and is credited for inventing foot racing. We at Hermes continue in his name to carry out and expand on the legend of foot racing. (http://www.pantheon.org/articles/h/hermes.html)
