Courtney Covers Cleveland has teamed up with RunWithTheWinners for the 2nd Annual Runteenth on Juneteenth sponsored by Third Space Action Lab.
The event will take place Saturday, June 19, 2021. at 10am. This 5k (3 miles total) Fun Run (or Walk) was created to bring the black running community together! We will meet at the Rockefeller Park (Cultural Garden) and park in the lot across the street from the tennis courts by the pond. We will then run to the African- American Cultural garden, hear from leadership, then run back. The first 250 Runners/Walkers can sign up to receive our FREE Runteenth on Juneteenth T-shirt.

Immediately following, we are asking you to join us at THIRD SPACE ACTION LAB! It’s going to be an afternoon of Fun, Food + Freedom-Dreaming! Following performances + discussions with the creators of the newly released In Search of the Land album, we will explore the goals + key themes of the Chocolate City Cleveland (CCC) Project: (re)Creating the Black Map of Cleveland.
I promise, last year was AMAZING… and well this year we aren’t expecting anything less! Grab your friends, grab your family… meet me there!
ABOUT OUR SPONSOR, THIRD SPACE ACTION LAB
ThirdSpace Action Lab was created to disrupt the vicious cycle of disinvestment and displacement that negatively impacts the vitality of low-income communities of color. We are a grassroots research, strategy & design cooperative, dedicated to prototyping creative place-based solutions to complex socioeconomic problems. We are institutional and community organizers, turning multidisciplinary research into evidence-based strategies; and activating “third places” to co-creating more liberated spaces for people of color.
We believe that the future of Cleveland’s neighborhoods depends on our collective efforts to transcend the limitations of the popular imagination and consider what will be possible if we insist on the beauty of forgotten places, the value of the people who live there, and seize the opportunity to realize our shared vision for an equitable and inclusive society. We are committed to making this vision a reality.
We believe that racial equity and inclusion are central, non-negotiable components of a viable growth strategy. We believe that human-centered design framework applied in communities of color should be inspired by all residents—especially, those who called this place home before its revitalization. Above all, we believe in the sanctity of humanity—that all humans have intrinsic value, deserve beauty, and need more than their basic needs satisfied.
