Organiser's Description

The Erie Marathon race course is ideal for setting your personal best record. Flat, Fast & Fun, our course provides beautiful views of Lake Erie as well as the City of Erie Bayfront and miles of coastline beaches, marshes and wooded paths. Held on Presque Isle, in Erie, PA, many of our participants return year after year to run in our race and enjoy the natural beauty our location provides.
It doesn’t get much flatter with less than a 250 foot total change in elevation for the marathon. The running surface is mostly asphalt but there is still about a third that is concrete. However, most of the course offers a grass surface along the paved surface should you choose to run there. There is a considerable amount of shade and sun on the course so it just depends upon if your glass is half full or half empty.
This is an all-volunteer run race with a cap of 2000. Race tracking is not offered and pace groups are contracted through The course is a Boston Qualifier.
In March of 2016, USA Today named Presque Isle State Park America’s Best Fresh Water Beach!
