Chippewa Creek Challenge Half Marathon

Saturday, October 24th 2020, 8:00 a.m.
Oak Grove, Brecksville Reservation

Part of the Dirty Trail Series presented by Salomon

RACE HAS BEEN APPROVED FOR IN-PERSON RACING!  See our COVID-19 Guidelines for more information.

New Distance! The Chippewa Creek Challenge Half Marathon will allow you to explore many of the trails throughout the Brecksville Reservation of the Cleveland Metroparks. Leaf peepers and fall lovers will enjoy viewing the autumn scenery and gorgeous multicolored foliage along the way.

Why a salamander in the race logo?  Brecksville Reservation has vernal pools with Spotted, Redback, and Jefferson varieties of Salamanders.  In the spring, thousands of salamanders undergo a trek from their home in the woods to the vernal breeding pools.  Not only are they just the cutest little animals but can you believe they have been on the Earth for more years than we have existed in days!
