Towpath Trilogy

Run in all three of our races and conquer the Towpath Trilogy! The Towpath Half in April, the Towpath Twilight Ten-Ten in June, and the Towpath Marathon in October make up the Towpath Trilogy.

This race series features a variety of race lengths along different sections of the Towpath Trail to accommodate runners and walkers of all experience levels.

All Towpath Trilogy races benefit the non-profit Canalway Partners. Your participation directly supports the programming 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.

Simply sign up for each of our three races in 2022 along different sections of the Towpath Trail. You’re rewarded with a discount and, as an added bonus, all Towpath Trilogy runners receive a custom-designed hoodie. Opportunities for awards in all races.  Collector medals and T-shirts too! 

Do you love what we’re doing for the Ohio & Erie Canalway National Heritage Area? When you register, consider making an additional donation or starting a fundraising campaign tied to your run!

Individual registrations will open after the Jan. 26, 2023.

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 participants and spectators from over 31 states!
