Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park

PENINSULA, Ohio (Wednesday, August 15, 2012) - Registration is now open for the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park's annual Fall Running Series. The Conservancy's Fall Running Series allows participants to experience the colorful fall landscape of Cuyahoga Valley National Park each week in October. Timed races will occur each Tuesday with non-competitive runs being held the following Wednesday. A "Full Moon Run" will also be held on Sunday, October 29.

The Fall Running Series will begin at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, October 2 at the Octagon Shelter, located at 801 Truxell Road in Peninsula.

"This is a truly unique event for runners. Each week, we announce a special "twist" just minutes prior to the beginning of each race," said Fall Running Series founder and Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park Finance Committee Chairman Guy Gadomski. "You can feel the excitement build among the runners as they scramble to come up with the best strategy right before hitting the trail."

For complete details and to register please call (330) 657-2909 ext. 136 or visit www.conservancyforcvnp.org/experience/outdoor/running.

During the Great Depression, the "boys of Company 567" of the Civilian Conservation Corps helped shape the landscape that would later become Cuyahoga Valley National Park by constructing buildings, playfields, and a lake, as well as planting over 100 acres of trees.
