2017 Burning River

Saturday, July 29, 2017, 4:00 am, Squires Castle

This epic adventure will MAKE your summer, whether you are running or volunteering.

Burning River is The. Best. Race. Ever. We know you already know that, but here’s a list of the top eleven reasons why … you know, for a friend.
  1. NEW FINISH LINE with beer!  HiHo Brewery (next to the Sheraton) will be used as race headquarters/finish line and will offer a beer and small snacks menu for extended hours during race weekend for runners and their families.
  2. Distance options! Something for everyone – from 10(ish) to 100 miles!
  3. Official BR race gear! New tech tees, Headsweats visors, trucker caps, mugs, water bottles, everyone’s favorite sticker, the poster, and more are available now.
  4. Run for free! Raise funds for the trails of your favorite Ohio parks. Proceeds will be split among the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Cleveland Metroparks, and Summit Metro Parks.
  5. Host Hotel! BR will again partner with the Sheraton in Cuyahoga Falls so you and your relay team or crew can clean up and rest in style.
  6. Live Runner Tracking! Free live runner tracking via the RaceJoy app is included in your race registration, for you and your fans.
  7. Free course familiarization runs! Dates TBA soon.
  8. Amazing Volunteers! It takes over 400 volunteers to make BR happen.
  9. Qualifying Race! The 2017 Burning River 100 is a Western States qualifier, the 3rd leg of the Midwest Grand Slam of Ultarunning, and now a UTMB qualifying race!
  10. The Support! Well-stocked aid stations every 5(ish) miles, easy access for crew and spectators, and plenty of friendly runners so you’ll never be alone on the trails.
  11. The Sponsors! Vertical RunnerHiHo Brewing Company, Saucony, Clif, and Hoka are the proud sponsors of this year’s epic adventure.
