Inaugural Pete Leneghan Entrepreneurship Basis run is that this weekend


CLEVELAND, Ohio – The Pete Leneghan Entrepreneurship Foundation’s first run is scheduled for Sunday, September 5th.

Pete and his brother Tom founded The Treehouse in 1996 in the Tremont neighborhood of Cleveland. Pete Leneghan, who also founded the Stone Mad Pub in the Detroit Shoreway neighborhood in 2008, died of colon cancer on May 29, 2020.

The run is at the Stone Mad Pub, 1306 West 65th St., Cleveland.

The 5K runs (with chip time) and the 1-mile runs (without timekeeping) will take place on Pete’s 58th birthday. The cost is $ 35. The races start at 9:30 a.m.

Race day registration and package pickup is 8:30 a.m. (Pick up today – Saturday, September 4 – 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at The Treehouse, 820 College Ave., Cleveland.)

Awards are given to the best placed by age.

Runners will receive a taco box from Barrios Food Truck that contains a taco, chips, salsa and guacamole. Additional boxes can be purchased on Sundays from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Runners aged 21 and over also receive a follow-up beer.
