Canal Corridor 100

Start July 13/14, 2019 @ 5:00AM

The Canal Corridor 100 Mile Endurance Run will be held on July 13th and 14th, 2019. Runners will run through existing portions of the exceptionally beautiful Towpath Trail in North East Ohio


The course is FAST, FLAT, and SCENIC suitable for anyone looking to complete their first 100 miler or a seasoned veteran who is going after the 100 miles PR. 

    

Although our goal is and has been to create a point-to-point 100-mile course using the towpath, continuing enhancements to the trail along with the subsequent closures of the towpath for these improvements cause us the revise the 2019 course. For the safety of the runners, crew and friends, the 3rd Annual Canal Corridor 100 Mile Endurance Run , will be an out and back course, starting and finishing at Camp Tuscazoar, in Dover OH. The turnaround will be at the Wolf Creek Aid Station at about 50 miles. There is camping, cabins and plenty of parking at Camp Tuscazoar.

75 years of Race Management Leadership

In 2017 our race directors had come together to create a new race that will build on the foundation of our unique park system while offering participants a great venue and a great celebration of running in an historic setting. CC100 will donate the proceeds from this event to other charitable organizations and to those in need.

Course Support

There are aid stations approximately every 5-7 miles apart throughout the course.  The aid station will be staffed by all star veteran ultra marathon volunteers and will offer water, sports drinks and various food items.  First Aid will be available throughout the course from local EMS.

The Ohio & Erie Canalway

A National Heritage Area … and a National Treasure

The Ohio & Erie Canalway is a National Heritage Area — designated by Congress in 1996 — to help preserve and celebrate the rails, trails, landscapes, towns and sites that grew up along the first 110 miles of the canal that helped Ohio and our nation grow.

Annually, more than 2.5 million Americans find their way to the iconic 81+ mile Towpath Trail running through the heart of the Canalway. The historic Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad and the nationally designated America’s Byway offer alternate Canalway travel options through the National Heritage Area.  Whether birding, hiking, bicycling or traveling by horseback, trail, rail or Byway — the cultural, historic, recreational and natural resources of the Ohio & Erie Canalway add quite a bit to the quality of life in the counties of Cuyahoga, Summit, Stark and Tuscarawas in Northeastern Ohio.

Within our borders — stretching 110 miles from Cleveland to New Philadelphia — you’ll find the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad, the County Park Districts of Cuyahoga, Summit, Stark and Tuscarawas Counties all working together with communities and organizations to restore, build and replenish the cultural, historical, natural and recreational resources of the region that collectively tell our story.

It’s been a source of economic strength for Ohio as well. Since receiving its National Heritage Area designation in 1996, the Ohio & Erie Canalway has leveraged upwards of $350 million in federal, state, local and private investments throughout the region. Of that total, $85 million in leveraged investments have taken place along the Towpath Trail itself. In many respects, it’s an historic return on the $12 million in National Park Service funding that the Ohio & Erie Canalway Association has been awarded and is distributing through a combination of grants and technical assistance to regional partners.

The collaborative community spirit at the heart of every National Heritage Area remains the hallmark of Ohio & Erie Canalway programs and projects that continue to help Ohio and our nation grow.
