Sat, July 30 – Sun, July 31, 2022
The 16th Annual Burning River Endurance Run & 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.
Due to continuing construction projects in the Cuyahoga Valley, the race will remain an out and back for 2022. We continue to work with the CVNP on plans to return to a point to point in the future.
