About This Activity

2017 Event Postponed - Due to the heavy amount of rain in the last few days, the NPS has determined that the trail system within the CVNP would be negatively impacted by the participants due to the saturated conditions. We have discussed many options to minimize both the impact on the participants and the trails within the CVNP. Unfortunately, the only option available is to reschedule the race when the trails are in better condition. We will continue to work with the NPS to determine the new date. We appreciate everyone's patience and understanding in this matter. We were notified a few hours ago and are doing our best to communicate status with everyone. As much as we wish it was, this is NOT an April Fools joke.

PACKET PICKUP FOR THIS EVENT IS ALSO POSTPONED.
STAY TUNED FOR FURTHER DETAILS

Come fool around on the trails with us! The Fools 50K and 25K Trail Run is a favorite among the locals. It is a 25K looped course through Virginia Kendall Park in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park in Peninsula, OH. The nearly 100% trail course (you do have to cross a road or two) is very runnable, it also has some highly technical single-track trails and some challenging hills. There is a portion that twists and turns until you can’t see another runner and another portion that is wide-open, cross-country trail. Any fool can see that this race has something for everyone, but don’t be left for a fool. This race is known to sell out!
