The A Christmas Story Run encourages runners and walkers to dress up in costumes from the 1983 holiday classic—bunny-suited Ralphie, human leg lamp, crate marked "fra-gee-lay"—and then embark on either a 5K or 10K route, with proceeds benefiting the A Christmas Story House Neighborhood Restoration Project. Both routes zip past the former Higbee's Department Store, the A Christmas Story House & Museum, along with a number of other locations from the film. 5K finishers can climb aboard Lolly the Trolley for a ride back to Public Square. The 10K route will loop back to the starting point. The top three racers in both the 5K and 10K will take home their very own "major award"—a leg lamp and an overwhelming sense of accomplishment. After the race, all participants can stay for a jumbotron screening of A Christmas Story.
The race kicks off at Public Square at 9 a.m. on Saturday, December 7. Runners can pick up their packets at A Christmas Story House & Museum on Thursday, December 5 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., on Friday, December 6 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Runners can also pick up their packets on race day until 7 a.m., but are strongly encourage to do so prior to race day to avoid long lines.

“If you are a fan of the classic holiday movie, you would love this place. The house used in the filming of the movie has been restored to resemble a house in an old neighborhood from the 1940s. There is even a leg lamp in the window and the old man's car is parked in a garage across the street in the museum. The gift shop is a hoot. You can buy leg lamps as well as pink bunny suits. There is even a "Christmas Vacation" section where you can get a Marty Moose mug. This place is open year round so come during the spring and summer and avoid the Christmas crowds (and better weather). If anyone is visiting Cleveland, this should be a must see as well as the rock hall. ”
“There is no signage telling you that you have to buy tickets @ the gift store before going to the house. Lots of memories.”
“Awesome experience for any one visiting Cleveland or for people born and raised here. Really puts you in the spirit! ”
