All participants in the Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon, Half Marathon & 10K should plan to be at the starting line at least 45 minutes to an hour before the start of the race. If driving in, you must be downtown before 6 a.m. when many roads begin shutting down.
The announcer will go over important race details that you will need to know. Also, you will need time to use the facilities and find the appropriate place in the starting corral based on your anticipated finish time. With 20,000 runners, this process can take some time.
