Many people at Fox 8 like to lace up the running shoes and pound the pavement, but one person stands out in that crowd.

Fox 8’s own John Telich competed in the Burning River 100 for the third straight year.

The race started early Saturday morning at Squires Castle in Willoughby Hills and ends Sunday, 100 miles later, in downtown Cuyahoga Falls.

This year, a number of Fox 8 employees, like Bill Martin, joined John for portions of the run.

JT tweeted Saturday night that he had to drop out of the race at mile 55 due to a knee injury. He thanked everyone for the support he received.
