Burning River Course

REGISTERVOLUNTEERDONATEGEARRESULTSGUIDES 

Western Reserve Racing works closely with our local parks to help ensure the best possible outdoor experiences for trail runners and all park users. We’ve made improvements to the course that will alleviate parking lot congestion, eliminate double aid stations, and incorporate the new permitting guidelines within the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. We want to thank each of the park systems for continuing to support Burning River Endurance Runs and Relay.

Western Reserve Racing is a proud friend and sponsor of the Cleveland Metroparks’ Trails Fund, The Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park, The Summit Metro Parks Foundation, and The Buckeye Trail Association. Please consider joining us with a donation of time or a financial contribution to help support the sustainability of our amazing shared backyard.
