2015 Glass City Marathon Race Entry Giveaway

Last year I gave away two entries (to the race of their choice) to two of my readers. I am going to do the same giveaway again! The Glass City Marathon was my very first (and so far my only) marathon and the Owens Corning Half Marathon was my first half marathon and the second race I ever ran in. I love this race weekend for so many reasons. One being that it is essentially in my backyard. I know that this doesn’t apply to people not in NW Ohio, but it is a Boston qualifier with a flat, fast course that is sure to please…even those who aren’t trying to BQ. PLUS, there are corrals at the start line, pacing teams, chip timing, finishers book (sent after the race), a short sleeve tech shirt, you earn an amazing race medal, and as a tribute to Toledo, the Glass City, a glass finishers mug. There is also a post-race party to end all post-race parties you’ve ever been to. Did I mention the free massages for runners after the race? There may be beer there as well…

I am leading an amazing team of Ambassadors again this year to help spread the word about the Glass City Marathon race weekend.


The two free entries that I am giving away are good for the Glass City Marathon, Owens Corning Half Marathon and the 5k.
Each of these races will require a training plan that you need to map out. Most marathon training plans suggest you train for 18 weeks, a half marathon training plan is typically around 12 weeks, and a lot of 5k plans can be around 8 weeks long. As of today, the race weekend is only 17+ weeks away. Still time to train your butt off for any of the races. But remember to think if you actually have the time to train for the race you want to run. That is something that is often overlooked. So plan your race, enter the giveaway and start training!

If you don’t win a race entry, or you don’t want to wait to see if you win, you can register for any of the races here.

I am not buying you a race entry, the amazing people who put together this race weekend are allowing me to sneak you in for free due to my status as a Glass City Marathon ambassador.

Happy Training!


  1. I would probably go for the full, hopefully this winter is not as bad as last. Training was brutal last year!

  2. I have been contemplating another marathon, and with any luck this would put the longest run late March/early April so not in the bitter cold!
    (Says the girl who today ran in shorts, in Michigan, in December!)

  3. Lauri Hardison says:

    2014 GCM was my first 5K. I’ll be part of 5-person relay for 2015…team Snails Pace.

  4. Jonathan Burns says:

    I would love to be able to run this race. I have been telling myself that I need to sign up for my first full marathon and have been looking at this one! My family and I just relocated from Lexington, KY to the Toledo area and this would be a great way to get connected to the running community here and achieve my first marathon. Thanks for sharing the info and giveaways!

  5. Fantastic Race…this was my first Half Marathon I did…have completed four total!

  6. I want to enter, I was one of the two who won an entry from you last year and I was great! I used to run my first marathon and finished in 4:06:49. If I were to win this year I’d train for the full again and aim to finish under 4 hours this time.

  7. I would like to enter for the marathon event. I first qualified for Boston at the Glass City Marathon in 2010. Additionally, I’m from NW Ohio so this will give me an opportunity to run near my hometown. The weekend was set really well, everything from the kids events to the course layout to finishing at the stadium. I’m really looking forward to running Glass City again this year! Thanks for setting this giveaway up:).

  8. Thanks for the chance to win an entry!

  9. What a wonderful opportunity! I’d love to run the half again. It’s been a few years.

  10. Jenny Sanders says:

    I would run the half marathon! This looks amazing! I have always wanted to make a day trip out of Toledo since I live in Cleveland but never have.

  11. The half! I ran my first half this year, and living in Youngstown gives me an opportunity to go to another city within Ohio and run a half.

  12. Andrea McNutt Longenecker says:

    I’d love to enter for the full marathon! Hoping to BQ!!!!

  13. Scott Ramsey says:

    I hope to run the half!

  14. Danielle Blech says:

    I want to run the half!

  15. Laura Bowsher Seiverth says:

    I’m going to go for the full this year. Fingers crossed for better training weather this year.

  16. Love to run the full!

  17. I Would love to be entered for the full marathon!

  18. This would be my fourth marathon; looking for a fast course to try to BQ!

  19. The half definitely! I want to maximize my time in the city so the longer the race, the better.

  20. Andrew Janes says:

    Would like a 1/2 entry so I can convince my wife to try her first 1/2 🙂

  21. Hi there! I found your blog on FB. I am hoping to run the half this year! I look forward to following your blog!

  22. Kristi Lundine says:

    I would most likely run the half with my husband. We have our first for the year scheduled for March 15th so this would be a perfect follow up race for us to do.

  23. Kristin Kirschbaum says:

    1/2 please. Thanks for the opportunity.

  24. lisa emanuele says:

    I would love to do the half and see if I can finally get under 2 hours this year. last year I ran in Monroe with a 2:01 time. 2015 is gonna be my year!

  25. Amy Lee Bridgins says:

    I’d love to run the 1/2

  26. HALF please–best of luck with training everyone!
