The Cleveland Marathon has always been one of my favorite races for a number of different reasons. The course, the city, and the experience make the Cleveland Marathon a great race. I lived downtown for a number of years and always loved the thrill and excitement of exploring the town I called home for so many years. While it isn’t as big as Chicago, Boston, or New York, it has so many characteristics that make it great.

Below are a few details about the race including why I like the race along with course maps, dates, and additional details to help you decide if you want to sign up. I have also included a few coupon codes to help save you 20% off the race entry fee.

Why do I like the Cleveland Marathon?

1. The city. I have lived in Northeast Ohio for 25 years and have run the streets of Cleveland for years.

2. Race Swag. The Cleveland Marathon usually has great shirts and gear that you get with your race entry and additional stuff you can buy at the race expo. While some of the merchandise is expensive, its still a great way to remember race day.

3. The course. The Cleveland Marathon course takes you through all the great areas of Cleveland and also provides some great views of Lake Erie and the Cleveland skyline. The course has changed over the years as the race has evolved.
