Glass City Marathon FAQs Pt. 1

We are less than two weeks out from the race.  Here is page 1 of 3 full of FAQs that are full of good info to know about the race and race weekend.

Are there energy gels on the course?

Yes. Gu Gel (Strawberry Banana, Triberry, Salted Caramel, Vanilla Bean) will be provided at the Start and at some water stops. See the course maps for locations.

What flavor of sports drink is served on the course?

Gatorade Lemon/Lime

Where are the start line, finish line, expo entry?

The start line for the Glass City Marathon, half marathon, 5-person relay and 5k are all located in the same spot, North of the University of Toledo campus on Bancroft St. — Get Directions

What is the temperature?

Temperatures are historically in the 40-55 degree range here in late April. We are in the midwest, so recommend you pack for cooler temperatures and inclement weather; dress in layers that you can discard at the start line or checkpoint/water stops. All discarded apparel will be donated.

Who gets a medal?

All finishers of the marathon, 5-person relay, half marathon and 5k will receive a medal upon crossing the finish line. Even Saturday’s kids race finishers get a medal.

Are strollers allowed on the courses?

The safety of runners and children are of the utmost importance to us. While strollers are not prohibited, it is recommended that those choosing to run with strollers start at the back of the field. Strollers are allowed in the 5K event, ONLY.

What pacer levels do you have? Is this the final set? How can I become a pacer?

Our pacing crew continues to grow each year with demand. Our goal is to provide pacers for as many of the common BQ marathon times we can as well as many in the half marathon. The times we are hoping to fill are listed on our pacing page and are considered firm, but not concrete. We continue to receive interest from experienced pacers e-mail for info and will place them as needed to provide the best experience as possible for our runners.

Part 2 coming soon!
