The 2018 Green Jewel will follow the same reversed course as in 2017. Please note: This is no longer a 2 person relay.
This race is a gem! It takes you on a tour of the extensive system of nature preserves in The Cleveland Metroparks, unofficially called the Emerald Necklace. The course meanders north on the paved all-purpose trail starting from Oak Grove Picnic Area in Brecksville Reservation, through Mill Stream Run, and ending at Scenic Park Picnic Area in Rocky River Reservation. There are plenty of places to meet your crew at the 5 aid stations along the route of this exciting point to point 50K. If you are looking for a 50K PR or maybe a first ultra-marathon, then you have found your race. Green Jewel also features a 25k starting at Wallace Lake.
The course steadily decreases in elevation, this is going to be a fast 50K!
DISTANCE 50K or 25K
