One of the fastest marathon courses in the Midwest, regularly boasting Boston Qualifying times for a third 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 on Bancroft St. near the University of Toledo North Tower. It will circle campus past Ottawa Park before continuing West into beautiful Ottawa Hills.
