At this point we now have a state park and Millcreek township event permit.  We will update this page and Facebook with changes, we will soon have the website updated ( )  Due to time constraints, Covid restrictions and construction in the Beach 1 parking lot there will be no buses, parking will be at Waldameer Park and will need to walk the .6 miles to the start and after the race.  There will be no vendors this year.  Number of water stops will be dependent on school groups being able to volunteer.  



. Location – Everything happens at the Erie Runners Club Beach 1 Pavilion on Presque Isle State Park. This location will be the start and finish for the marathon.  All race participants must park at Waldameer or  the Ridge Center and walk down the hill.

It doesn’t get much flatter with less than a 250 foot total change in elevation for the marathon. The running surface is mostly asphalt but there is still about a third that is concrete. However, most of the course offers a grass surface along the paved surface should you choose to run there. There is a considerable amount of shade and sun on the course so it just depends upon if your glass is half full or half empty.  This is an all volunteer run race with a cap of 2000.  We do not offer race tracking and pace groups are contracted through  The course is a Boston Qualifier.
