Cleveland Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K and 5K

May 19 @ 7:00 am - 2:00 pm

Cleveland Marathon Logo

The Cleveland Marathon and Half Marathon will be held on Sunday, May 19, 2024 in downtown Cleveland, Ohio.  Race weekend also includes a 5K and 10K race which is held on Saturday, May 18, 2024. What I love about the Cleveland marathon is the tour through downtown areas of Cleveland which has a cool architecture, lots of sites to see, and a fun, enthusiastic crowd to cheer you on. 

2024 Race Details

The marathon starts at 7:00 AM, and the half marathon starts at 7:30 AM. 

Both races offer registrants a variety of swag including a short-sleeved T-shirt, goodie bags, a finisher’s medal, and more.

Marathon participants are required to maintain a pace to finish within seven hours and half marathoners must keep a minimum pace of 16 minutes per mile.

Starting at 7:00 AM, the 10K race features a fast, flat course through downtown Cleveland and its charming neighborhoods. It shares the same benefits as the marathon and half marathon and is part of the Challenge Series, offering various competitive levels.

The 5K, also commencing at 7:00 AM, is ideal for both walkers and runners to engage in the race weekend. It’s a great event for families to experience the city together. This race too is part of the Challenge Series and offers the same participant perks.


Packet Pick-Up

Race packet collection will take place at the Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland. In addition to the packet pick-up, visiting the venue will provide runners with the opportunity to enjoy a variety of features, including sponsor exhibits, health screenings, merchandise, and various other vendors.
