The Towpath Trilogy race series consists of the Towpath Half Marathon, Towpath Ten-Ten, and Towpath Marathon. Sign up for one race or all three! When you complete all three races, you become part of the elite “Towpath Trilogy” club, you receive a Towpath Trilogy hoodie, and you get to register for next year’s races before the general public!
The Towpath Marathon was established in 1992 to introduce the Towpath Trail as a new recreational amenity and to promote the establishment of the Ohio & Erie Canalway; in 1993, it was one of ten events that celebrated the completion of the Towpath Trail through the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.
Since its inception the Towpath Marathon has grown to become one of Northeast Ohio’s premier marathons, attracting an average of 1,200 participants and 3,500 spectators from more than twenty-seven states for a weekend of outdoor festivities and athletic competition!
Your participation in the Towpath Trilogy directly supports the development of the Towpath Trail, Canal Basin Park, and dozens of projects within the Ohio & Erie Canalway National Heritage Area, projects that make our community stronger and more vibrant.
