Fall Running Series

Tuesday evenings in October in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park


The Fall Running Series consists of weekly fun-themed running races, on weeknights during the month of October, at various locations in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. It’s a great time of the year to run and make new friends on the trails! Participation in the Fall Running Series includes awesome swag items, a series finisher medal, and 5 high-energy events with a twist. We’ve got some brand new crazy ideas in the works for this year! The “twist” will be announced just prior to the start of each run. All levels of runners and walkers are welcome — and you don’t have to be the fastest to win!  Bring a flashlight or headlamp if you anticipate walking or running at a more moderate pace. Events will be held regardless of weather conditions.

A portion of the proceeds from these events will be donated to the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park.
