In its 36th year, the Cleveland Marathon features a relatively flat and fast course, great volunteer support and a scenic view of downtown Cleveland and its major landmarks. The course has been designed for our athletes to enjoy views of FirstEnergy Stadium, Home of the Cleveland Browns, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Lake Erie and many other Cleveland highlights.
Official times of the 26.2-mile competitive foot race are maintained for 8 hours.
The full marathon course is open for 8 hours.
All Marathon runners/walkers will receive a Virtual Race Bag, an Asics technical, short-sleeved T-shirt, and a finishers medallion with an electric guitar that spins. The top 3 male and female finishers in each age group will receive an award that will be mailed post-race.
In order to complete in the walking division, you will be expected to walk the entire distance; completion of the course is on the honor system. The overall top 5 male and females will receive an award that will be mailed post-race.
If you win an award and did not walk the entire route, you will be expected to inform the race officials in order to move you into marathon running division.
