After a successful first year of partnership in 2016, University Hospitals (UH) Sports Medicine will return as the official health care provider for the 40th
running of the Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon.
As the official health care partner of the 2017 Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon, UH Sports Medicine physicians will provide on site care for all runners participating in the full, half, 10K, 8K and 5K races that occur during the weekend of May 20-21.
Per the agreement, UH will provide medical counsel and coverage for an estimated 15,000 runners who annually enjoy the course along Lake Erie’s shoreline. Jeffrey Luk, MD, will return as the medical director for the marathon and is excited to help athletes complete the course competitively and safely.
“I’m excited about returning as the medical director for the 2017 Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon,” said Dr. Luk. “We at University Hospitals are looking forward to building on last year’s successful race and to again provide medical staffing for the marathon. Our plan is to ensure a fun and most importantly, a safe marathon for all participants.”
