Thank you to the almost 2000 participants from 28 states who participated in the Inaugural Grand Lake Marathon. We are excited to announce date, event details and some exciting changes for the second annual event September 26, 2015.

We invite you to escape the concrete jungle and come run in the country. A scenic loop on the shores of Grand Lake St. Marys awaits Marathoners with beautiful views of the lake, family farms and rural  America. Half Marathon participants will enjoy a run along the Northern shores of Grand Lake St.Marys and a finish in St. Marys, historic canal town.

We want to make your race day special by providing the following race amenities: custom shirt with custom Grand Lake Marathon artwork, custom bib numbers with your name, custom age group awards, no service fees added to your race entry, event expo, a free download of your favorite race photo, a beer ticket,  free custom 13.1 /26.2  stickers to all participants, and finally, one awesome lake themed finisher medal.

Our course is flat, fast and USATF certified for Boston qualification. USATF Certificate: OH14003MW lists Grand Lake as the fastest course in Ohio
