Burning River weekend

Click image for webcast

It's time to head out for the weekend.

The Burning River 100 mile endurance race starts at 5:00 AM at Squires Castle in North Chagrin Reservation.

Runners descend upon the Cuyahoga and must endure sun-exposed Towpath Trail near the Cuyahoga River between miles 30-39.

The Cuyahoga River was dubbed the "Burning River" when it caught fire in late 1960's due to industrial pollution. With the heat and humidity of an Ohio August, the Burning River is sure to live up to it's name.

You can meet the runners and keep track of their progress on the webcast. Also available: Aid station details, course guide, video footage of the course, and link to local weather.

It's not too late to volunteer. Come on out.

Ledges Overlook. Mile 71 of the Burning River 100 mile endurance run.
