The Canal Corridor 100 Mile Endurance Run will be held on October 7-8, 2023. Runners will run through existing portions of the exceptionally beautiful Towpath Trail in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Akron, and Canal Fulton, Ohio. The race is FAST, FLAT, SCENIC and INCLUSIVE suitable for anyone looking to complete their first 100 miler or a seasoned veteran who is going after a PR. There is a 30 hour time cutoff. If you’re looking to run 100, but the race is inaccessible to you financially, please contact the race director. Every year several runners ask that we donate their registration to someone in need. We can fit you in. The start/finish line is at Missing Falls Brewery in downtown Akron, Ohio. The course runs along the Towpath Trail following the Ohio & Erie Canalway. The Towpath is a crushed limestone trail that yields to asphalt or concrete walkway and wooden bridges. The start is in downtown Akron, Ohio and runners will travel south on the Towpath to Ernie’s Bike Shop in Massillon, totaling 27 miles, then you will return north, pass back through Akron and head into the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. You can obtain aid from the Missing Falls Brewery parking area – mile 53.9 – and at your closely-parked car at this point as well. After departing the Missing Falls Brewery aid station the second time, runners will head north on The Towpath through the Summit Metroparks and into the Cuyahoga Valley National Park all the way to Lock 29 in Peninsula before turning around to return to Akron, Ohio.
