Just wanted to share that yesterday was an amazing morning for the Towpath Half Marathon. The weather was perfect. The volunteers were so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable!  There is so much natural beauty is hidden within the industrial section of Cleveland!

Thanks again for all your help in putting on this race, it’s a great training race for those working towards the Cleveland Marathon next month, and I hope it went well on your guys end!

Last year was my first experience with the Towpath Marathon (we recently moved to the area), and it
quickly became one of my favorite events. You do a great job…looking forward to the others this year!
