Athens Ohio Marathon
Come to beautiful Athens, Ohio and run the state’s longest consecutively run marathon.
Starting in 1968 the Athens Marathon hasn’t taken a break since giving it the title of “Ohio’s Longest Running Marathon.” With that rich history participants will start in beautiful Uptown Athens right next to the College Green of Ohio University. The course soon connects with the Hockhocking-Adena Bikeway for a fast and flat remainder of the race before finishing on the Ohio University track. You’ll experience the rich views Athens has to offer in spring time while you meander along the Hocking River valley. Though Athens is known for its foothills, you’ll stay safely in the valley for the marathon course making this an ideal fast race course to get your Boston Marathon qualifier.
