SPARTATHLON

A 246 kilometer race from Athens to Sparta to replicate the path that Pheidippides traveled in 490 BC to seek help in the war between the Greeks and the Persians before the battle of Marathon.

Big Backyard Ultra

Fun.

Trail Runner Magazine’s description: “Since 2012, Lazarus Lake, the infamous race director who relishes in the pain of others, has been quietly hosting runners for his last-man-standing race on his property in Bell Buckle, Tennessee. The format is simple: Runners must complete a 4.16667-mile loop every hour until only one hardy soul is left. Whatever time they bank before the next hour begins is theirs. So it’s not a race of speed but rather a war of attrition where all but the winner DNF.”

Canal Corridor 100 Mile Endurance Run

Canal Corridor 100 Mile Endurance Run

The Canal Corridor 100 is one of our favorite races. It’s fast & flat, but also celebrates a hometown gem: the Ohio and Erie Canalway. The aid stations (all 5-7 miles apart) are all managed by dedicated ultrarunners who will both keep you fueled and keep you going. In its first two years, the course was an out & back in two different directions from the start due to Cuyahoga Valley National Park trail closures. A point-to-point course may be in the works this year depending on bridge construction in the National Park. Regardless, in the same way that Tunnel Hill 100 is seeing exceptional 100 mile trail times, Canal Corridor will give you 100 mile PR opportunities.

The Mohican Trail 100 Mile Run

Running for 28 years, MO100 was the home of the first USATF Ultra Running Championships in 2005. The 100-miler is 4 loops of single track through Mohican Memorial State Forest. The course is challenging. Though she consistently races the 100, Connie has been heard saying that the 50-miler is the smart distance on this course. They also offer a marathon distance.

  • 13611 Forest Hill Avenue Cleveland, OH (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

A trail 50k, 25k and fun run as part of the Running Forward Giving Back Series. This is a free race. From the website: “The Forgotten is an urban trail ultra race experience held in Forest Hill Park, which borders Cleveland Heights and East Cleveland. The rich history of the area is often forgotten. Forest Hill Park was the former estate of John D. Rockefeller, the wealthiest person in history, whose family donated the land for public use. The course is beautiful, with wonderful meadows, deep gorges, old pathways, majestic trees, rolling hills and waterways. Urban graffiti, abandoned buildings and other ruins are constant reminders of Cleveland's past and present.”
