Celebrating Our 45th Running

You know what anniversary years mean. Everything has to be bigger and better than the previous years. That's what we're planning — and you're invited to celebrate with us.

One of the fastest marathon courses in the Midwest, annually boasting Boston Qualifying times for 25% of the field, the Mercy Health Glass City Marathon (GCM) 26.2 mile one loop course will take you on a tour from the University of Toledo, through historic surrounding suburbs, the award winning Wildwood Metropark and University Parks Trail to a grand finish inside the Glass Bowl Stadium in the heart of campus.

Marathoners, half marathoners and relay teams (leg 1) will all begin together at the West edge of campus on Secor Rd. at W. Towerview, circle campus on renovated Dorr St. to Parkside, before heading West into beautiful Ottawa Hills. The course then leads you to the area’s finest Metropark system, on to Sylvania past beautiful Olander Park (home of Sy Mah's commemorative statue), then back into the Metropark toward a reflective stretch down the paved trail to, Rally Row, the big finish, and post-race party in Celebration Village with family and fans.

MAKE YOUR FIRST TIME IN TOLEDO

GCM IS THE SPOT FOR THE BEST FIRST EXPERIENCE
Each year GCM also includes a special perks package for all first-time marathoners. If this will be the first time you’ll be running a full marathon (26.2 miles), let us know during registration and we’ll have some special benefits waiting for you on race weekend.

  • Personalized Service at Expo
  • Commemorative Recognition Package
  • Special Race Day BIB
  • + More

Since 1971, Toledo has hosted one of fastest races in the country. As a top 25 fastest course and historically having 20+ percent of our finishers qualifying for the illustrious Boston Marathon, GCM has grown from one of the longest running marathons in the USA, to an annual favorite for a field of up to 10,000 runners and walkers from all corners of the globe who are looking for a competitive challenge in a hometown atmosphere, with premium perks and a memorable experience at an affordable price.

We're consistently focused on providing a top-notch package to everyone and building great community partnerships with likeminded goals of putting the participants first. More than a thousand volunteers are on location over the three day race weekend, made up of individuals of all ages and backgrounds. We make sure you're supported from the time you arrive at the expo, to the start line, on the course and after the finish line. 

Each calendar year your host, the Toledo Roadrunners Club, grants area nonprofits the opportunity to partner with this signature event. This year alone, the Mercy Health Glass City Marathon will benefit multiple local charity partners, and has contributed nearly $800K to area nonprofits since 2009. Create your fundraising campaign when you register and help us continue to bring beneficial resources to others in need.

RESERVE YOUR ROOM EARLY

We've partnered with RoomRoster to secure marathon rates for race weekend at multiple area hotels. Visit the booking portal on our website to reserve your stay in Toledo. We recommend doing this as soon as you register for the race, as the hotels begin to fill quickly once registration opens.
