Being a resident near DTW, CLE is a savior for those needing mileage runs. The maximum miles you can rack up is CLE-IAH-SEA-IAH-SEA from UA, totaling 5930 miles. It's a painful and torturous run with red eye RT, not ideal if you can't take days off work (be ready to work upon CLE arrival).
If you're willing to spend a night in Seattle (highly recommended for hanging around fish market and riding the ferries), currently the following Sat departures are available - April 13th ($278) CLE-EWR-SEA-EWR-CLE netting 5610 miles, May 4th ($275) CLE-IAH-SEA-IAH-CLE netting 5930 miles and April 27th ($248) CLE-IAD-SEA-EWR-CLE netting 5399 miles, beware some FFPs do not earn miles on N fares.
Another semi-MR option is CLE-SMF (I visit relatives for one day) starting Sat, and you get near 5000 miles for each run, most of those fares are available in Aug and Sept.
