Mercy Health Glass City Marathon #44
April 23, 2021 - April 25, 2021The University of Toledo
The Mercy Health Glass City Marathon is one of the oldest marathons in the United States. If not for a brief hiatus in the 80’s, Glass City would be in the top 60 oldest marathons in the nation. As a top 25 rated Boston Qualifier event, Glass City attracts runners from nearly all fifty states and around the globe each year. Because of the flat terrain here in northwest Ohio and the quality courses, runners come to run faster in Toledo — and they do. At the 2019 running, 25% of the marathoners posted a Boston qualifying time, making GCM a top 10 springtime BQ race. With a field of nearly 400 first-time marathoners each year and overall registration near the 9,500 mark, everyone crosses the finish line in the University of Toledo Glass Bowl knowing they just accomplished something bigger than they could most other places. Registration prices can’t be beat; and what you get for the money, you’d think we were crazy. We’re not! We know we’re better together, and want everyone to be able to afford the experience.
