15th Annual Burning River Race

July 24 to July 25

Saturday, July 24th – July 25th, 2021
Cuyahoga Falls


The 15th 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.

The 100 Mile out and back course begins on Front Street in Downtown Cuyahoga Falls and then enters/follows the scenic Cuyahoga River Valley Corridor to the halfway point at Silver Springs Park in Stow before turning around and heading back to Cuyahoga Falls. 50 Mile participants will complete a point to point course from Cuyahoga Falls to Silver Springs, and 50 Mile Back Half participants will start in the evening at Silver Springs and finish in Cuyahoga Falls. The course consists of hiking trails, towpath, all-purpose trails, and short sections of road for connectivity.

The 2021 Burning River 100 is a Western States qualifier, the 3rd leg of the Midwest Grand Slam of Ultarunning, and a UTMB qualifying race! Based on the ITRA’s point system, we are anticipating our event will receive 5 points. You can find more details at the following link – ITRA. In addition, the Grand Slam of Ultrarunning will include Burning River 100 this year as a substitute for the canceled Vermont 100.
