Expect Traffic Delays for Hermes 10-Miler, Slated for April 22

April 19, 2017

More than 2,000 runners are slated to make their way through several Lakewood streets on Saturday, April 22, as part of the Hermes Cleveland 10 Miler race.

The 10-mile race, now in its 13th year, will also tie up traffic for a portion of the morning.

The Lakewood portion of the route runs from Lake Avenue at W.117th and continues to Kenneth. The route then reverses along Lake Avenue and out of Lakewood.

Traveling on Lake Avenue — both east and west — will be prohibited from 8:30 a.m. 10:30 a.m. Dozens of police officers have been hired to manage traffic that needs to cross Lake Avenue north and south.

“There may be significant delays at times, but officers will work to help keep the runners safe and traffic moving as breaks in the runners allows,” said Lakewood Police Lt. Roger Warner.

“If anyone absolutely has to leave on time that morning, they may consider leaving a little early or parking overnight on Clifton Boulevard or on one of the nearby side streets south of Lake Avenue.”
