Description

Explore the Best of Brecksville Reservation at the Spring Running Series on Wednesday evenings May 1st, 8th, and 15th! Offering a diverse and challenging terrain for runners and hikers at all levels, the series fits easily into many spring training plans – though the trails are so peaceful and scenic that you will forget that you are training! You will be scored weekly, with final results tallied for series awards after the final race. More seasoned participants will appreciate the age-graded scoring at race #2! Join fellow trail friends for a post-race meetup at a different local brewpub each week!

Course

As the sounds of spring peepers and songbirds fill the air, you’ll explore the best trails at Brecksville reservation. Be sure to watch for salamanders along the way. Covering the same five miles of trails each week, you will watch the progress of the trees and flowers in bloom as well as your own progress – as you challenge yourself to get faster with each race. Spring Running Series course maps coming soon!
