2020 Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon virtual Event - CLOSED

Congratulations Virtual Finishers!

Packet mailings are currently in the works! All packets including shirt, medal, goody bag and duffel bag (if you participated in the Challenge Series) are expected to be mailed by the end of June, 2020. If you have a change in mailing address, please email us with the updated information at info@clevelandmarathon.com.


The purpose of the virtual race is to allow participants to complete the race that they have been training, while adhering to the recommendations provided by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

We encourage EVERYONE to stay positive and focused on achieving your goals. Use hashtag: #IConqueredMyLand and show us where you doing your runs and when you complete your race!

All distances are included in the Virtual Event. If you are doing one of the Challenge Series (5K/Half, 5K/Full, 10K/Half, 10K/Full) you must complete the distances in two consecutive days. Please note: Your two distances must include one of the above combinations in order to get the appropriate challenge medal.

All currently registered participants will be automatically entered into the Virtual Event unless you defer to a future date.

What is a Virtual Event? Let us explain... 

  • Do the distance you signed up for between April 15th and May 17th (including May 17). Jump in and commit to moving your body by doing a 5K, 10K, Half Marathon or Full Marathon at YOUR PACE.
  • Bring your spirit and look at the positive! We all need to keep active at this time of social isolation. The Cleveland Marathon wants to promote healthy living in our community.
  • Document it! Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter then use hashtag #IConqueredMyLand. Show us your training, progress and your virtual event!

  • Keep your eye out for our mini-challenges and contests! We have a lot of fun stuff planned with our sponsors and we want you to share in our excitement. As the team at Fleet Feet says, "Running is not cancelled!" #RunningIsNotCancelled
  • Send us your results because we want to see 'em! Submit your results when you complete your event. You may upload a finishers photo if you would like (not mandatory).
  • Get your swag! We will send you your shirt and medal in June (or when it is safe to do so). We are really excited for you to see our gear this year.

During these times, we ask you don't run as a group and DO practice social distancing. We expect you will practice the guidelines suggested for your community, following regulations and exceptions set in place to help us all move through this and keep each other safe.

How does the kid's run work?

The Virtual Kid's Run works just about the same as usual, however the distances to choose from are as follows: 1 mile, 1/2 mile, 1/4 mile or 100 yards. If your child is small and can only run shorter distances, you may split up the total distance; however, just submit one time in the results. Kids will receive their t-shirt and medal via mail.


How do I complete the challenge series?

Any of the 4 Challenge Series (5K/Half Marathon, 5K/Full Marathon, 10K/Half Marathon, 10K/Full Marathon) should be completed as you normally would during race weekend - in two consecutive days. When you submit your results, you will submit one result for each distance. Your t-shirts, medals, duffel bag and goody bag will all be mailed to you.

IMPORTANT: If you are currently registered for the Challenge Series, we encourage you to complete both events this year OR defer both events to next year. If your training is not going as planned and you choose to split your registrations (run one event virtually this year, and defer the second event to next year), you are no longer considered a Challenge Series participant and will not receive your second event shirt/medal and challenge series medal. You will, however, still be mailed your medal, t-shirt and duffel bag for your completed event.


Can I still register for the Virtual Event?

Registration is now closed for the 2020 Virtual Event.
