Glass City Marathon FAQs Pt 3

Port-A-Johns – how many and where?

There are over 90 port-a-johns at the start, finish and at locations around the course. See the water stop locations and services page for detailed locations.

Are there pacers for this year’s marathon?

Yes, Dave’s Running Shop will be coordinating all of the pacing responsibilities. There will be a question/answer session as part of the pre race Expo. The pacer times will be published on the Pacing Page upon confirmation from approved pacers.

What are the age limits for all events?

You must be at least 16 years old to enter the marathon. There are no age limits in the relays or 5K. The half marathon is open to those 13 years and older. A parent or guardian must sign a waiver if participant is under 18. The kid’s races are limited to ages 12 and under.

Is the race a “Boston Qualifier”?

Can I walk the Owens Corning Half Marathon?

Yes! The course is open until 11am, so pace must be maintained to finish by 11am. The cutoff is strictly enforced.

Can I start the Marathon and then decide to switch to the finish on the Half Marathon course?

No. There is limited space on each course and crashing the last few miles of the Half Marathon Course is unfair to the runners who registered for the event. You may transfer to the half marathon prior to race day provided the event is not sold out.

Do you offer text alerts?

The Glass City Marathon was the first Ohio race to offer a full mobile experience with an option for live GPS tracking as part of the RaceJoy mobile app. The App also offers text notifications. Download the app from our site and see how it will provide you with course updates or live GPS tracking. You can also view our Live Leaderboard feed.
