    Race packets will be NOT be available for pickup before this race
    Day-Of Race Registration will take place at
    Murray Ridge Center, 9750 Murray Ridge Rd., Elyria Ohio 44035.
    Please allow enough time to finish at the check-in table to avoid delaying the start of the race.
     
    The Course:

    A Marathon, Half Marathon or 5K Run/Walk on the North Coast Inland Trail, starting from Murray Ridge Center

     

    The marathon is a Boston qualifier!

    PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU DID NOT COMPETE IN 2015 or 2016: Due to feedback from race participants, we began using a new route last year for the marathon and half marathon. Both races will now start at the Murray Ridge School and proceed through some city streets in Elyria before merging onto the North Coast Inland Trail – it will no longer be a straight out and back race. While the trail is certainly scenic, many runners found having the entire race on the trail to be somewhat monotonous. The new route will also mean that we will NOT be busing half marathoners to Kipton before the start. They will start and finish at the school, which will give them more time to stretch and prepare before the race in a warm indoor environment. The 5K course will not be affected. We hope runners will enjoy the new course and scenery, which still retain a significant portion of the trail.

     

    Certification Number:

    Marathon - OH-13051-MW

     
    The Facilities:
    • Plenty of parking available
