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.
