Get active and support key programs in your national park by signing up for the annual Fall Running Series!

With your registration, you’ll fund projects to maintain CVNP’s running, biking, and hiking trails. Plus, you’ll have a chance to get fit and experience your national park in a friendly race setting.

The Fall Running Series is held on Tuesdays in October and consists of five races held at different locations throughout CVNP. Each race is held at a different location throughout the national park—each with its own exciting twists.

Register for the Fall Running Series with Western Reserve Racing >

When you participate in the Fall Running Series, you’ll be funding projects to maintain CVNP’s running, biking, and hiking trails. You’ll also receive renewed membership with the Conservancy, which includes invitations to Conservancy programs, a weekly e-newsletter, discounts on Trail Mix purchases, the park’s quarterly schedule of events mailed to your home, and more.


To ensure Conservancy race events in the valley remain top-notch and to ensure any proceeds go directly to your national park, we partner with Western Reserve Racing for running events in CVNP. 

Western Reserve Racing's vision is to provide runners and race directors with the finest race experiences, as well as encourage exploration of local park systems. To that end, Western Reserve Racing now manages all Conservancy races, including the Fall Running Series. This partnership leaves race management to the experts and lets the Conservancy channel race proceeds directly into vital park programs, including trail improvements and ecosystem restoration.
