About this Event

Nation's First All Indoor, 3 Level 5K & 10K Race
The Get Fit Indoor Race is the most unique event the I-X Center has ever produced.  The multi-level all indoor race will not only enhance the runner’s experience, but challenge their overall endurance.  The Get Fit Expo is partnering with Hermes Sports and Events, Northeast Ohio’s premier race management group to produce the Nations first and only all indoor multi-level race.

The YMCA of Greater Cleveland will be the Official Charity Partner of the Get Fit Indoor Race. A portion of each race registration will go directly to funding the fantastic non-profit programs the YMCA has created to improve the well-being of our community, especially the nationally-recognized We Run This City marathon program for inner-city youth. Runners will get the opportunity to see exactly how their money is impacting these programs and helping to change the lives of youth in our community.
