Last Saturday I did what every Cleveland Marathon Runner would do on an afternoon drive….I drove the ENTIRE (well almost) Cleveland Marathon course! I say almost because a couple streets were one-way streets and I would have had to go in the wrong direction and I like to keep my law breaking to a minimum.
As you may have heard the course starts uphill (insert gasp!). Which is awesome because we get it over with early! (insert positivity)
The course this year starts and ends at the Browns Stadium ( well I think it ends a little before the browns stadium but close enough).
And it is flat for the most part.
There are very few hills and as long as there is no wind or rain it should be a very good day to run.
I intended to post pictures throughout the entire course but I got “click” happy and ended up taking over 130 pictures. But I’ll share some of my favorites along the way.
So that’s the course in a nutshell. If you have a chance I recommend driving the course so that you are familiar with it.
Also, if you are able I am still raising money for Autism and could really use your donations to meet my goal! http://www.active.com/donate/runforautism11/mojamala2
P.S. Also saw this on my Tour de Cleveland Marathon
