Lakewood STREETWALK 2010 – Get Ready to “Tug” And “Run”
Get Active! There is much new to do this year at STREETWALK 2010. Try belly dancing, play 4-Square, test wall climbing skills, run a 5K race, and compete in a tug-o-war for the ultimate challenge against the Lakewood Firefighter Combat Challenge Team. Or, maybe you would prefer to eat great food, listen to music, and watch the Burning River Roller Girls roller-derby demo or the skate boarders try out the Red Bull ramps and jumps. There is definitely something for everyone.
The Second Annual STREETWALK will take place on July 17, 2010 from 3 p.m. – 8 p.m. on Detroit Avenue between Arthur and Marlowe Avenues. This community event promotes “active living” and last year drew more than 5,000 residents and visitors from Northeast Ohio to Downtown Lakewood. Check out last year’s event at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Yj3xRpMSfM.
New this year is the STREETWALK 5K Run which will begin at Lakewood Park (5 p.m.) and end in downtown Lakewood with the awards ceremony at 6:00 p.m. This Hermes managed event will be advertised to the running community and will also include a Children’s Run to begin at St. Charles Green proceeding on closed Detroit Avenue and ending in front of Lakewood Center West. Register at www.heremescleveland.com.
Also new this year is the Lakewood Firefighter Combat Challenge Team and Local 382 Firefighters’ Union Tug-o-War competition.
