Celebrating its 40th year, the Rite-Aid Cleveland Marathon and half marathon expects to draw over 15,000 runners and walkers. Participants will pass many of the most picturesque views of Cleveland as they make their way to the finish line. Organizers will donate proceeds to a wide variety of local non-profit charities. While there have been a few minor changes to the course, the starting line remains at the Quicken Loans Arena. The marathon begins at 7 a.m. but pre-registration is required and it’s free to watch the race. After the race, there will be a finish line rock party featuring a beer garden. Consult the website for the schedule of events happening in conjunction with the race. (Vidal) clevelandmarathon.com.
