Uniontown, OH 44685

Meet Time
6:20-6:25 a.m.

Run Time
Promptly at 6:30 a.m.

Route Description
Y'all asked for flat.  Here is the best attempt we can get in Ohio.  This was the route I used EVERY SINGLE WEEK AND EVERY SINGLE DAY when training for my first marathon.  I have grown to hate every inch of this road.  However, I'm taking one for the team and I'm taking a run down memory lane on Saturday.  This route is pretty flat.  You will have a hill at mile 2, 4, and 6.  The rest is downhill or flat.  So, suck it up and enjoy your last "LONG" run before the Cleveland Marathon. 

Turn RIGHT out of the Magnus driveway on to Market Street

  • Sunview Circle (1 Mile)

  • State and Market intersection (2 Miles)
Turn LEFT on State Street

  • State and Kent intersection (2.7 Miles)

  • Continue straight on State Street

  • Crappy red barn on right (3 Miles)
State Street and Middlebranch (4 Miles)

  • Turn around at the cone for exact mileage needed.

  • Run back and let's CELEBRATE!!! 
Feel free to bring the kids to make posters for race day!!! 
Don't forget to bring a breakfast item to share.
