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 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 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.
