Fall Running Series

Tuesday evenings in October in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park

Come join the fun in Cuyahoga Valley National Park! The Fall Running Series consists of weekly fun-themed trail races on Tuesday evenings in October. The series includes awesome swag and five high-energy events with a twist. Each event is held at a different location in the CVNP and is between 3 and 6 miles. To add to the excitement, the twist remains a secret until just before the start of the event. It’s a great time of the year to make new friends on the trails!

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 are held regardless of weather conditions.

Donations benefit the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

Note: We have been granted special permission to run/hike with our dogs for event #5 at Camp Butler, but spectator dogs are not permitted on Camp Butler property at any time during this event.
