And they're off...thousands hit the streets for Cleveland Marathon

And they're off...thousands hit the streets for Cleveland Marathon

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Cleveland Marathon runners kicked into gear  7 a.m. Sunday. The race features one of the flattest and fastest courses in the country, offering full marathon, half marathon, 10K and 5K events.

There were plenty of road closures all over downtown Cleveland, Ohio City, Lakewood and more. When a race covers 26.2 miles that's a lot of ground to cover.

More than 15,000 people signed up for the Cleveland Marathon. Our very own Shelby Miller, Samantha Roberts and Chris Tanka participated in Sunday's race. Good luck to all the runners.
