The Burner - Ohio's Toughest 7 Miles - August 20
NEW Elite Timed Wave

We've created a vigorous obstacle challenge of miles and trials on a race to your personal victory!

There will be mud! there will be walls! there will be pitfalls!

The Burner is a 7 mile obstacle race, mud run and physical challenge taking place in Hubbard, Ohio at Big Game Raceway on August 20, 2016! We believe that perseverance, teamwork and helping the runner next to you is more important than 1st place. Since 2013, we have brought the toughest 7 mile obstacle course & mud run possible to Northeast Ohio and are back this year with new obstacles, new mud, and new challenges.

We want an event that provides challenge not because of a mile number, but for everything you go through in between mile one and mile done!

We want a race to leave you battered, worn and dirty!

That's The Burner.

See some of the challenges we have faced in previous challenges on our obstacles page and Sign Up now for the August 20, 2016 Race. Returning for 2016 is a 3 Mile 5k loop for those who want the challenge of our obstacles and our mud without the extra running.
