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 to accommodate runners and walkers of all experience levels.

The Towpath Trilogy aids in the fundraising efforts by Canalway Partners to support other Towpath Trail events and programming in the Ohio & Erie Canalway National Heritage Area.

In order to complete the Towpath Trilogy, runners must take part in all three races.  By doing so, you will be rewarded with a Custom Towpath Trilogy Hoodie and receive exclusive invitations to all of Canalway Partners’ events.

This year, we’re offering you the opportunity to sign up for all three races at a discounted price. You will receive $5 off each race for at total in savings of $15!! Registering for the Towpath Trilogy series will guarantee you a slot in each race, a big advantage in a year where limited race fields, demand will be high, and races will most likely sell out. Registration for the Towpath Trilogy will open February 15, 2021.

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 registration for the Towpath Half Marathon will open two weeks later on March 1, 2021.

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!
