Parrot Head Run

Proceeds Benefit Fostering Hope


We will unfortunately not be able to run together on July 11 this year. We heard from the City of Cleveland that the event will need to be fully virtual. The after party at Margaritaville will unfortunately be canceled as well...

But who said a VIRTUAL RUN can't be FUN?

What does a virtual run/walk mean? You can run/walk our course in the Flats when convenient, or choose a course of your own. You can still submit your time to Hermes to be posted on the website. Just email your 5K time to by Monday, July 13.

Best Parrot Head Attire will be awarded by crowd vote via social media likes.

Adults $30, kids 12 & under are $20.

100% of the Parrot Head Run's proceeds go to local children's charity Fostering Hope. Through your support over the last 3 years, we have been able to donate over $48,000 to them. That money helps to fund mental wellness programs for Cleveland kids in foster care and residential treatment.

We are doing our best to help Fostering Hope again this year despite the circumstances we are all facing. Direct donations via the run are much-appreciated, and we are still happily welcoming sponsors on board. Please reach out if you'd like to help - or simply sign up to run/walk with your family and friends

We so greatly value your support, and hope to be together again in 2021!
