Perrysburg hosts half-marathon start

The Glass City Marathon adds a new run to the fitness packed weekend this year and Perrysburg is the site of the starting line—on Sunday, April 26th, 2009, runners gather along Front Street between Louisiana and Riverside Park for the inaugural start. 

Front Street and the downtown area are both historic and scenic.  “What better place to start a half marathon than Perrysburg” says this year’s race director, Perrysburg’s Clint McCormick; “we have received a lot of community support and are looking forward to a great day in Perrysburg.” 

The run will have a simultaneous start time of 8:00 a.m. with the marathoners and team relays starting in downtown Toledo.  A 5k will begin at 8:15am in downtown Toledo and a kid’s marathon will be held the day before during the fitness expo.

 In its 33rd year, the Glass City Marathon looks to increase the participation field by adding a half-marathon.   “It has become common in the marathon industry to add a half-marathon to boost attendance.  There are a lot of people who like to run this distance, and many who like to walk.  We are expecting about 2,000 runners this year with 1,000 runners in this event alone,” according to McCormick. 

Registration is still open and can be done online until 4/15/09.  An expanded expo and a post-race party have also been added to the event weekend.  For more information and to register, go to www.glasscitymarathon.org.
