Like the flow of our favorite river, the Burning River course is always changing. The Cuyahoga National Park continues to focus on 10 construction projects that are aimed at restoring the river, supporting flood plains, and improving the water quality in Lake Erie. These projects require various trail and towpath closures within the CVNP. With these two locations not available, we could not design a course that goes one direction point-to-point. Thus, the 2020 Burning River course will once again be a 50 mile out and back. Though we will miss the unique challenge of a point-to-point race, we appreciate and celebrate the improvements to our beloved Burning River, The Cuyahoga.
Together, we can support the long term health of our waterway AND enjoy an excellent, world class 100 mile race.
