About The London OH Marathon

The London OH Marathon, organized by the Merrimac Miracle Organization, is a highly anticipated event in the running calendar, scheduled to take place on April 20, 2024. This race serves as a significant fundraiser for the improvement of the Merri-Mac Park, aiming to enhance the park’s facilities such as play equipment, recreational paths, and sports fields.

The race offers three different events, including a full marathon, a half marathon, and a 5K race. Both the full and half marathon races will commence at 7 am sharp, while the 5K race will start at 7:15 am.

The course’s USATF certification guarantees its accuracy and suitability for achieving personal records and Boston Qualifying times.
