Ohio’s oldest marathon is also the best, lowest cost, low-key marathon around. While we don’t offer stand-up mile markers, clocks at every mile, and large crowd support, what we do offer for the low pre-registration price of $25-$50 is an awesome tech shirt, a classy finishers medal, an accurate/road-marked/chip timed/certified/Boston-qualifier course, stocked aid stations every 2 miles, plenty of hot food and showers post race, and THE GREATEST volunteers in the land.
