Written by Healthy Living News. Posted in March

The Toledo Roadrunners Club is excited to announce its continued relationship with Medical Mutual as the Title Sponsor of the Glass City Marathon for the third year. The 2014 Medical Mutual Glass City Marathon will take place on Sunday, April 27, 2014. A percentage of proceeds will benefit several non-profit partners, primarily the Great Lakes Collaborative for Autism and Habitat for Humanity.


“Medical Mutual is sponsoring the Glass City Marathon because it supports our company’s philosophy to promote fitness and healthy lifestyles,” said Gary Thieman, Senior Vice President, Northwestern Ohio Region, for Medical Mutual. “The race is one of the community’s top events and benefits several important charitable causes. We are actively encouraging our employees, customers, and members to participate, which will help the event grow and prosper.”

The 2014 Medical Mutual Glass City Marathon is a family event offering multiple races to fit every level of participant, including a Marathon, Owens Corning Half Marathon, 5-Person Marathon Relay, 5K, and the Findley Davies Kids’ Marathon. Dave’s Performance Footgear is the official training team for the Marathon and Owens Corning Half Marathon. The training runs provide heart-rate coaching and support to help you accomplish your running goal.

The Medical Mutual Glass City Marathon is known for being one of the fastest courses in the nation and acts as a qualifier for the Boston Marathon. Race participants are encouraged to register early to ensure that they secure their spot in this time-honored event; the Owens Corning Half Marathon is guaranteed to sell out as in past years.

The Corporate Relay division is a focus for 2014, as corporate wellness initiatives continue to grow within local companies. A team of five runners will each run a portion of the full marathon course with each running approximately five miles. Only 250 teams will be accepted. Normal and late registration is available until April 26, 2014. No registrations will be accepted on race day. For more information and to register online, visit
