A Christmas Story Run

Registration for 2015 Now Open!


Register early for the 2015 A Christmas Story 5K/10K Run!   Back by popular demand, this third annual race is expected to sell out!  Join us for this family friendly run in Cleveland, Ohio.  This one-of-a-kind run will take you down Memory Lane, past movie filming locations.  Your registration even includes admission to A Christmas Story House & Museum, where you can visit the interactive Parker family home and reenact your favorite movie scenes!  Each race participant will receive a limited-edition long-sleeve race tee shirt, race medal, and unique race bib, among many other amenities!

Can’t make it to Cleveland?  Sign up for the Virtual Run and participate in your own hometown!  Virtual participants will still receive a race medal, tee shirt and race bib, just like the Cleveland runners.  This iconic run has attracted participants from across the globe!  You don’t want to miss it!

The newest race medal design to add to your A Christmas Story collection will be revealed on July 25th, 2015.   Sign up for early registration to get a “Sneak Peek” at this medal design before it is released to the general public!!!

Your race registration helps our community!  100% of the proceeds from race registration go back into the community through grants for home restoration projects through
A Christmas Story House Foundation, Inc., a non-profit foundation established to restore and maintain the neighborhood surrounding A Christmas Story House & Museum for future generations to experience and enjoy.

Be sure to watch the videos below to see what an awesome time our runners had at the 2014 race!

Not a runner?  No problem!  You can still participate in all of the festivities by volunteering to help out on Race Day!  We are in need of over 200 volunteers the week of the race.  All volunteers will get an awesome limited-edition A Christmas Story Run volunteer shirt!

Register now before you have to say “Oh, Fudge!  I missed out!”.  See you on
December 5th!

Seriously, without you runners this would not be possible! You solely (pun intended) are the ones to thank for all of the great and wonderful things that come out of this run. We are glad that the weather held up for the most part (hey it’s Cleveland it could’ve been MUCH worse) and that everything went as smoothly as it did. We hope that your experience was as enjoyable as ours!

As many of you know, we did unfortunately have an unexpected medal shortage at the finish line.  Although the majority of you did receive your finisher medal, there were a few of you at the end that did not.  As much as we’d love to blame Black Bart and his marauders for all the trouble, we can’t.  We sadly discovered at the very last minute that there was a shipping issue.  The company that makes the medals made a terrible mistake, and they did not arrive!  Believe us — we are just as upset as you are — if not more!! We’ve been working feverishly for a year now planning this day so that it would be PERFECT for all of you!!  When things don’t go as planned, and we fall short of our goals, we take it very personal!


Fortunately – Ralphie and Old Blue are going to save the day!!!  As soon as we realized there was not going to be enough, we paid close attention to the exact moment the medals were gone.  This time has been recorded, and everyone who crossed the finish line after that time, will automatically receive a medal in the mail as soon as they come in!! (the medal company told us it will be approximately 30 days — they are also just sick over this and send their most sincere apologies!)

If for some reason you feel your situation is unique, please email us! (info@achristmasstoryrun.com)  We realize some of you may have moved since registration, or you crossed the finish line, but waited for a family member before getting your medal and missed out, some of you were even kind enough to offer your medals to others, etc.  There will be some of these situations, and you just need to shoot us an email and we’ll sort through it all! Promise!!

We again apologize for any issues with the medals, and thank everyone for being so patient and understanding!  So many of you came to us and had such warm and encouraging words, and have been so kind! Thank you — it means a lot!!   It also furthers why we love the running community, A Christmas Story fans, and this wonderful city so much! You all are AMAZING!!!



Also announced during the award ceremony….

UPDATED 1/7/15: 

If you ran the A Christmas Story Run on December 6, 2014 and did not receive a medal, they are shipping out the first week of January.   Attached is the list of names of runners who were chip timed and recorded as not getting a medal.   If you emailed us and let us know that you had a unique situation that prevented you from receiving a medal, even though you crossed the finish line in plenty of time, you are added to the bottom of this list.   If you sent us an email in December after the race, but do not see your name on this list, please email us immediately!  info@achristmasstoryrun.com
