About the event: This is a Free Race! 
There are strings attached however. The event will provide a first rate running experience for its participants but you must give back by doing two or more of the following: donating to one of our partner charities or participating in one of the trail clean up days at the Richfield Heritage Preserve. Dates will be announced for those unable to donate. Donations accepted at http://www.bba50k.com/ under Crowell Hilaka.

Come out and spend the day running on primitive trails, bridle trails, and camp roads! The Richfield Heritage Preserve, formerly Crowell Hilaka, has it all. This park is rich in history. Home to the pioneer Oviatt family, this park has also been a fruit farm, home to inventor Jim Kirby, and then 75 years as a Girl Scout camp.

Ohio's Buckeye trail also runs through the park, providing runners with beautiful primitive trails. There will be roots, rocks, mud, and maybe a creek crossing or two. Since the race is in mid October, the fall colors will be out in full splendor!
There will be a 6 mile loop with and out & back at the end for the extra mile for both distances.
