Marathon
Cleveland, Ohio
Click to go to the web site for the Towpath Marathon in Cleveland, Ohio

The Towpath Marathon is a unique and different race from others in its class. The venue within which the race is run is a park and differs only as to which agency has jurisdiction - the National Park Service or Cleveland Metroparks.

It is "a race for a cause" - in our case, it supports the work of Ohio Canal Corridor in extending the Towpath Trail north to the lakefront.

The course for the Towpath Marathon is flat, with a crushed limestone surface along the majority of the run. The timing of the event coincides with the changing fall foliage. Temperatures are predictably fall-like: crisp, yet warming with sun: mid-40's in the morning; reaching high 60's or low 70's by afternoon.

In this section, we will describe the associated landscapes that runners will encounter as they travel the 26.2 mile course. We will provide photos that document the natural areas, the remnants of the historic canal locks and industrial towns, the adjacent farm fields and villages between Sagamore Hills and Valley View.

How to Avoid The Porta Potty During a Race
