Nationwide Children’s Hospital – Toledo Kids Run

Fun Run, Half Mile & 1 Mile Distances • Ages 2 to 12

Saturday, April 26, 2025 • Mercy Health Kids Zone


The first race of the day will be the Fun Run beginning at 11:00am. Immediately following the start of the Fun Run we will line up the 1 mile runners. This run will start shortly after the younger kids finish. All kid’s races finish in the Glass Bowl stadium. Parents will enter the Northeast gate to the field and stay on the outside of the barricades to take photos, video and receive kids after they finish — no-one is allowed inside the finish chute except staff and runners (parents running course with kids allowed to finish with kids). Kids will exit the finish chute onto the field near the Northeast corner of the stadium where you entered.

Nationwide Children’s – Toledo is proud to be part of the Glass City Marathon Kids Race again this year ,and support young athletes and their families that participate — being part of this community event that encourages kids to be healthy. There are so many benefits to being active.
