One of the fastest marathon courses in the Midwest, The Mercy Health Glass City Marathon (GCM) course will begin on Secor Road at the University of Toledo West Entrance, circle campus before heading West into beautiful Ottawa Hills. The course then leads you to the area’s finest Metropark system utilizing the University Parks bike Trail. A tour through Sylvania leads you to Olander Park, passing the statue of Sy Mah, then back down the bike trail to a short tour of the UT campus concluding with the finish on the 50 yard line of the UT Glass Bowl Football Stadium.

Veterans are counting on us!
