Volunteers - Please read below for an important 2021 race update:

The Union Home Mortgage Cleveland Marathon announced today that the 2021 race and related events, scheduled for May 15-16, have been postponed until the fall due to COVID-19.

A specific date has not been set yet for the fall as the marathon team is actively working with the City of Cleveland on scheduling a date that does not conflict with a Cleveland Browns home game. An update is expected once the 2021 NFL schedule has been released. 

Please sign up now to volunteer in the Fall, 2021. We will notify you once the dates are set!

Thank you for your patience.
