The 14th Annual Burning River Endurance Runs & Relay is an exciting 100 and 50 mile solo run and 100 mile relay held in Northeast Ohio. The race travels through several of the region’s most scenic areas, including the Cuyahoga Valley National Park and the Summit Metro Parks.
The out and back course begins at Hi Ho Brewing Co. in Cuyahoga Falls. The 100 mile run and relay follow the scenic Cuyahoga River Valley Corridor to the halfway point at Silver Springs Park before turning around and heading back to Downtown Cuyahoga Falls. The Front 50 mile distance option begins at Hi Ho and finishes at Silver Springs Park located in Stow, Ohio. The Back 50 mile race begins at Silver Springs and finishes in Downtown Cuyahoga Falls.
The 2020 Burning River 100 is a Western States qualifier, the 3rd leg of the Midwest Grand Slam of Ultarunning, and a UTMB qualifying race!
Burning River also offers a relay option in addition to the solo race. Same course, same distance. Choose your team of 4 or 8 people. Experience a 100 mile race at a distance that is comfortable for you. Consider helping out at the aid station after your leg of the race to further immerse yourself in the event.
