The Burning River 100 is an exciting 100 mile run held in Northeast Ohio that travels through several of the region’s most beautiful and historic areas. Starting at Squire’s Castle in Willoughby Hills, the run follows the scenic Cuyahoga River Valley Corridor through the Cleveland Metroparks, Cuyahoga Valley National Park, and Metro Parks Serving Summit County before finishing in Downtown Cuyahoga Falls. More than just a race, Burning River is a multi-community event which recognizes the history of the past and celebrates the blazing future of the Cleveland and Akron areas.
New for 2014– Burning River is offering a relay option in addition to the solo race. Same course, same distance. Choose your team of 2, 4, or 8 people and experience a 100 mile race at a distance that is comfortable for you.
