The Towpath Trail 10K and Half Marathon!  Come join the fun and run the beautifully maintained towpath trail along the mighty Maumee River.  Both courses start at Providence Metropark near the dam across the river from Grand Rapids, OH. You'll head out on the historic canal towpath and then return to the finish at the Providence dam and shelter. The towpath is crushed gravel and dirt with lots of shade. You'll enjoy scenic views of the river and run past the historic canal locks and grain mill at the park. You can hang around by the dam at the Shelter after the race and then visit quaint Grand Rapids.

Half marathoners should be able to finish within three hours. Walkers are encouraged to participate in the 10K.  Gift certificates will be given to male and female overall, masters (age 40-49), and grand masters (age 50 and above) winners in both races. No age group awards but all finishers will receive a medal and commemorative item.

New for 2024 specific to the Towpath Trail 10K & Half Marathon.  Mercy Health – Toledo will provide onsite medical support with assistance from Nationwide Children's Hospital – Toledo athletic trainers.

The Towpath Trail 10K and Half Marathon is one of three trail race events in the Toledo Roadrunners Club Trail Race Series in partnership with Metroparks Toledo.  It is a great introductory trail race as it is flat, open, and has good footing. It is perfect for just a run or training for an early fall marathon.  Other races include the Oak Openings Stampede 5K and 25K races at Oak Openings Metropark on September 29 and Falling Leaves 5K and 8 mile races at Secor Metropark on October 27.

Registration for the Towpath Trail 10K and Half Marathon includes a tee shirt and giveaway to be revealed at a later date.  There is no shirt option where more of your registration fee will go to charity!

Towpath Trail 10K and Half Marathon is currently capped at 175 participants.  This event sold out 5 weeks in advance of the 2023 event.

Toledo Roadrunners Club members receive a $5.00 discount which will be taken at final check out.  Sign up to be a member at

Like last year, there is an additional $6.00 discount ($2.00 per event) if you register for all three Trail Series events at the same time. No discount will apply if you register for one now and the others later.
