Welcome to 2021!

2020 was a difficult year for many, and with the Cleveland Marathon going virtual, we missed seeing all of you in person. As of now, we are planning for an in-person event for Saturday and Sunday, May 15 & 16, 2021. That said, due to COVID-19 there will be a number of changes that will be put in place in order to execute race weekend, including a health and safety plan for all participants and volunteers, which is mandated on a local and state level. Below are some of the most important changes. We will continue to share updates as we gain more information.Copy Of Volunteer Image For Sign Up Page

2021 Race Updates

  • The location of the race and the routes will be different from past years. We will share the new location and course maps once they are finalized.

  • There will be an interactive Virtual Health and Fitness Expo with sponsor and vendor links available for participants and volunteers to access.
  • There will be no post-race activities. Upon finishing, participants must retrieve their recovery items and move through the corral to exit.
  • There will be contact-free water stations (limited on-course). Participants will be advised to bring their own recovery items, however, there will be recovery items in the finish line area.

COVID-19 Safety and Health Guidelines for Race Weekend

  • Volunteers will be required to follow safety rules and guidelines set forth by the local, state, and race authorities.
  • Social distancing will be enforced at the start, during the race, and at the finish line.
  • Masks must be worn at the start and finish line at all times.
