About the Race:

This Toledo area tradition since 1971 is known for being one of the 25 fastest courses in the nation and acts as a qualifier for the Boston Marathon. The race is called the Glass City Marathon because the City of Toledo’s nickname is the Glass City. Toledo took on this nickname long ago because of its storied history and influential role in the glass industry. Learn more about the Glass City Marathon
