We brought back Joe’s Winter Buckeye Trail 50k/Marathon/Half Marathon run.  The 2018 race will start and finish at Oak Grove in the Brecksville Reservation. You have your choice of distances and the course will consist of several out and backs in both directions on the BT. Aid stations, medals, and delicious hot food & drinks will be available at the finish. Water bottles are strongly encouraged.

Despite the new location, this event is still a fundraiser for the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park. A portion of the proceeds will go directly to them and their commitment to excellent trails.
