Get Yours Before They’re Gone
*11th Anniversary Run
The Owens Corning Half Marathon starts at the same time and location as the Mercy Health Glass City Marathon. All runners will stay together for the first several miles before full and half course splits. Everyone finishes on the 50 yard line of the Glass Bowl Stadium.
If you want to experience a large race atmosphere, with small town hospitality, and don’t wish to run a full marathon, you can take part in the 10th running of Northwest Ohio’s premier spring half marathon to see what it’s all about.
All registrants in the half marathon will receive a commemorative 1/4 zip. Inventory is limited for each size, so signup early to guarantee your first choice.
Team Marathon Event
Washington Local Schools Shuttles to/from Relay Points
Run the full Marathon as a team of five. Each team member will run one leg of the full 26.2 mile course.
1 = 3.1mi / 2 = 5.7mi / 3 = 6.4mi / 4 = 5.8mi / 5 = 5.3mi
Every member of the relay team is invited to stage at Rally Row to run the final entry into the Glass Bowl and finish together, where all five of you will each receive a custom finisher medal.
For your convenience and to reduce traffic congestion around the course, shuttle service will be provided from the University of Toledo campus to the team relay exchange points.
Kick-off to the Weekend
A Starting Point for All Skill Levels
*2-Ledo Series • Add-on Saturday Morning 5k
Choose to run the 5k as part of your pre-race shake out preparation. The Glass City 5k is offered as an add-on to your main event, for a very low rate during registration.
The Glass City 5k also remains a competitive run/walk event for our short distance participants. You will experience the same great atmosphere and Glass Bowl finish line as Sunday’s feature events. Saturday’s 5k will be immediately followed by the Findley Davies Kids Runs, starting on the track near Savage Arena.
Come back Sunday ready to race and finish the full marathon, half marathon or relay marathon, celebrate or to cheer the runners to the finish line, or along the course nearest you.
