The Towpath Marathon was established in 1992 to introduce the Towpath Trail as a new recreational amenity and to promote the establishment of the Ohio & Erie Canalway. In 1993, it was one of ten events that celebrated the completion of the Towpath Trail through the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Since its inception the Towpath Marathon has grown to become one of Northeast Ohio’s premier marathons, attracting participants and spectators from more than 42 states! The Towpath Trail in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park is flat, approx 10 feet wide in some locations and the surface is primarily crushed limestone.
