Get active & support your national park by signing up for the 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, explore your national park, and get great swag (a cozy microfleece vest).

The Fall Running Series is held each week 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 twist.

2016 Race Schedule

You can choose to be timed for each race, or you can run for fun without being timed. 

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, 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.
