The 2018 Youngstown Marathon is June 3

The Youngstown Marathon is returning with a new course for 2018! You can help support local charities and promote a healthy lifestyle by participating in this amazing event. Get ready for the big race on June 3!

You might remember reading about the inaugural Youngstown Marathon in this blog post from last year, but a new year means a new course! The marathon's organizers have decided to bring more Youngstown into the Youngstown Marathon by having the race run through both downtown and YSU. As an added bonus, the new course is also less hilly than last year's, so the redesign is a win-win! To see an interactive version of the 2018 course, click here.

The full and half marathons kick off at 7 a.m. on Sunday, June 3, while the 5k will begin at 7:15 a.m. All races start and end at the Second Sole shoe store located at 755 Boardman Canfield Road in Boardman. There will also be a kids dash held on June 2.

In addition to the kids dash, the Youngstown Marathon Expo will also be happening on Saturday, June 2. Join all your fellow runners and organizers at the Covelli Centre from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Attendees can explore the many health & fitness vendors and will also have the chance to pick up their bibs and shirts. Plus, the expo is open to the public!
