finisher of Run Puritas 5K and 1mile fun run/walk This annual 5K road race and 1 mile fun run/walk for all ages benefits BPDC’s special events and work in the West Park community housing, senior, and youth services. Run Puritas features Puritas Avenue, of course, the W. 140th St. Education Corridor [including John Marshall High School (JMHS)], and its side streets, winding past bungalows and ranches. Magnolias and tulips should be in their glory along the lesser-known nooks and quiet crannies of West Park.

Get a group of 10+ together with mail-in pre-registration and get special team recognition and a $5 discount on each entry off the pre-registration discount!  Who’s got the most neighborhood pride and bring the biggest team?  Will it be a baseball team, a senior group, a church, a particular block, business, family, school or alumni group that brings the most? All proceeds benefit Bellaire-Puritas Development Corporation.  

Children, strollers, and leashed pets are welcome.  There will be a limited number of hand-painted dog bandanas made for this event for participating dogs (by the children of the West Park MyCom Fashion Club at the West Park branch of the Cleveland Public Library) while supplies last.

The run is dog-friendly!
