Event Information
Enjoy views of downtown Cleveland and the Cuyahoga River waterfront during the festival, run and walk. This fun and interactive event includes water education stations, food trucks, beer, wine, cocktails, games for all ages, and lots of entertainment. In 2017, because of you, we raised $95,000 for Drink Local. Drink Tap., Inc.’s programs. Since 2014, we have raised $295,000 and engaged several thousand people - thank you! Your efforts have saved lives and supported our programming to inspire responsible and sustainable water use for all generations.
What Will I Get?
We've invested in YOU, our runners, and we've ramped it up this year!

All runner and walkers will receive:

  • NEW in 2018: Race Timing Chip
  • 4 Miles 4 Water Stainless Steel Water Bottle
  • Pic-2-Go Professional Race Photos Online
  • Complimentary Post-Race Beer (21+ only)
  • Virtual Swag... which means no 'Eco-Guilt'
  • Entrance to All Things Water Festival (8am-1pm); suggested $10 donation for all non-registered runners/walkers
  • Plus a chance to win gift certificates and more if you place in your age group!
Timing Chips?
Yes! We've added Timing Chips in 2018; each mile will be marked.
Why No Race T-Shirt?
One cotton t-shirt requires 700 gallons of water to produce. As champions of our world's water supply, our goal is to raise awareness responsibly. That's why we'll give you a reusable, stainless steel water bottle instead. You're welcome!

Why is the race 4 Miles?
4 miles is the average distance many people in the world have to walk in order to obtain drinking water. How does a 4 mile walk sound before your morning coffee?
Where does my money really go?
Since our founding, we have completed countless projects locally and in our sister-country, Uganda. Read all about our projects HERE, and keep up to date on all things Drink Local. Drink Tap. HERE
Additional Event Information

In order to preserve our fresh water resources and have a positive impact on the global water crisis, we must create more awareness and reconnect people with the fresh water resources in our own backyard. All of which can be achieved through 4 Miles 4 Water!

On Saturday, May 26th, 2018, 4 Miles 4 Water will take place at Jacobs Pavilion at the Nautica Entertainment Complex. Enjoy views of downtown Cleveland and the Cuyahoga River waterfront during the festival, run and walk!

We Love Our Sponsors

We are excited to welcome back our Sponsors (2017 shown here) and will be updating this for 2018. Click here to learn more about how to sponsor the 2018 event.

Why is it $30 to register?
$30 is the average cost to bring clean drinking water to one person -- for life! Your registration fee will be used to improve the lives of those who have limited access to safe drinking water. And if you're 17 and under, we'll discount the registration fee to just $10.
