Glass City Marathon - Race Weekend Info - Part 2

     As promised, here is the rest of all the valuable race weekend info for the Glass City Marathon!

Bib Numbers and Corral Assignments

Your Bib number is your ticket to everything. You can lookup your BIB number in the RaceJoy app now, or at the expo when you first walk in. This should be your first stop before entering the Expo main floor. If you forget though, don't worry; we have our Girls on the Run volunteers roaming with mobile devices to help you look up your BIB.

When you pick it up at the Expo, confirm everything is accurate -- age, gender, event. This will provide you with access to your starting corral, integrated timing chip, food tent, and includes your beer tickets.
  • All participants will be assigned to a specific Start Corral (Elite, Corral A, B, C, D, Open).
  • Your BIB will identify your corral assignment and is assigned by your estimated finish time.
  • All Start Corrals start at 7:02am. NO WAVE START.

Finisher Medal Engraving

The Glass City Marathon has partnered with Finish Line Engravers to offer Marathon and Half Marathon finishers the opportunity to have their name and chip time engraved on our cool finishers medals while you wait.

Celebrate your passion, perseverance, and personal success on event day by personalizing your award in the Finish Line Celebration area.

Cost is $10 for name and chip time, $5 additional for customizing. You can purchase the day of the event with cash or credit card. 

Bag Drop

Goodwill of NW Ohio will be hosting our bag drop again this year. The location will be in lot 6, just East of the starting line. For security reasons, do not drop off duffle bags, back packs, or bags that are difficult to search. 

Discarded clothing:
Any clothing discarded on the course is considered a donation and will be collected by our Goodwill volunteers. Please help keep the course clean and discard at water stops if necessary.

Post Race Activities

Wear your finisher medal around Toledo and get rewarded. The minor league baseball team, the Toledo Mud Hens, are at home and providing GCM finishers with discounted rates for both Saturday and Sunday games. Purchase online with coupon code GCM, or show up to the ticket office with your finisher medal for $10 tickets.

Relay Team Instructions

2015 is the largest year for team relays with 300 teams. With 1500 runners making up these teams, traveling from exchange point to exchange point can be challenging especially with closed roads. Use this instruction set to help you get where you need to when you need to.


Tracking Runners:
Timing mats have been arranged this year to be coordinated with the exchange zones. You can track your runners using the RaceJoy app and is highly recommended to follow your runners through the event.
