Proceeds to benefit EDWINS

Every day men and women at EDWINS Leadership & Restaurant Institute grind it out to get a second chance after incarceration.

Are you tough enough to push through the pain and pressure like they do?

Compete in the 5K Grind, our sixth annual EDWINS Run for Re-Entry, to show returning citizens everywhere that YOU support their right for fair and equal futures.

The race starts and ends at Shaker Square, but the course is unlike any other 5K in Cleveland. We start in Shaker Square and continue on to Doan Creek. That includes trail running including some spots where you go through the creek.

Off road. Through the water. Uphill. Unbalanced. A battle between you and the terrain.
