Ready, sweat, go!  LakewoodAlive’s Hybrid Summer Meltdown 5K and 1 Mile Family Fun Run & Walk took place on Sunday, July 25 with an in-person race and a virtual race from  July 10 through 23.

In an effort to ensure comfort and safety during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Lakewood Summer Meltdown sponsored by Melt Bar and Grilled was orchestrated as a hybrid event with a virtual and in-person race, to ensure that all participants had the opportunity to continue this long-held Lakewood summer tradition. The Hybrid Meltdown 5K served as a fundraiser for LakewoodAlive, a community centered non-profit organization.

VIRTUAL OPTION: Run anywhere and support LakewoodAlive! Complete the race at your convenience anytime between July 10 and July 23, by running through your neighborhood, favorite park or using a treadmill and recording your time on our event page.

IN-PERSON OPTION: Join us at the lake! Our live, in-person race kicked off at 9 a.m. on July 25 at Lakewood Park (14532 Lake Avenue, Lakewood, OH 44107). View the course here. The race was socially distanced and the 1 Mile Fun Run began after the last wave of 5K runners.

In addition to supporting LakewoodAlive, your participation in the Virtual Meltdown 5K came with the following perks:

  • A special edition Hybrid Meltdown 5K commemorative t-shirt
  • Prizes for top finishers in each age category
  • Every registration will be entered into a LakewoodAlive drawing for a Summer Fun Basket.

Want to commemorate your Hybrid Summer Meltdown 5K & Family Fun Run experience? Participants in either race had an opportunity to purchase a stainless steel 25-ounce double wall insulated LakewoodAlive #LovingLakewood water bottle.

Race participants were encouraged to share their Lakewood pride by posting a race-day selfie on Facebook and Instagram using hashtag #HybridMeltdown5K for a chance to be featured on LakewoodAlive’s social pages.

For those Meltdown fans interested in a more relaxed exercise experience, the 1 Mile Family Fun Run & Walk was priced right at $12 per participant and intended for anyone to enjoy.

Thank you to all who participated in our Summer Meltdown Hybrid 5K & Family Fun Run, a fundraiser for LakewoodAlive, and helped to make it a beautiful day! Stay tuned for details about Summer Meltdown 2022.
