The 2017 Burning River Film Festival is Sunday October 22nd.

9am – Free Group Run

Join us at Vertical Runner of Brecksville for a 5ish mile trail run through the beautiful Brecksville Reservation. Altra Running will be at the run with free demo shoes for runners to try out. Run leaves at 9am sharp so come early to get your size of demo shoe as quantities are limited. Coffee, snacks, and good times to be had by all.

Vertical Runner is located at 8929 Brecksville Rd, Brecksville, OH 44141

4pm – Doors Open

This isn’t just a bunch of movies about trail & ultra running….. The doors of the Akron Civic Theater open at 4pm and the party begins! There will be vendors, running clubs, race directors, authors, music, food, and plenty of adult beverages. Bring the family, catch up with old friends, make some new ones, drink some beer, and hastily sign up for an ultra!

Akron Civic Theatre is located at 182 S Main St, Akron, OH 44308

6pm – Movie Time!

Short films featuring the people, stories, and races of the trail and ultra running community will be presented on the big screen in the grand setting of the Akron Civic. Yep, at the BRFF we have successfully combined gilted statues, chandeliers, and the incredible twinkling stars and drifting clouds that travel across the domed ceiling of one of the nation’s only atmospheric theaters with the foul language, snot rockets, and brutal chaffage that is trail and ultra running!
