2020 CANCELLATION NOTICE
We’ve been working around-the-clock to make this event happen, but through close consultation with the city and health department, and with current construction considerations, we cannot feasibly present an in-person race in Downtown Toledo in September.
The competitive nature and course for this event does not lend itself to being a virtual race. We’ve disabled the signup process and all current registrants will have their entry deferred to our 2021 running. The deferment will display in your account once we open registration for next year’s WTOL River Run 10K.
In the meantime, keep training and look ahead to running the October 11th MacQueen’s 10K & 5K in person.
2021 DETAILS (projected)
$4,500 Prize Purse + Saucony Shoes
Welcome to Downtown Toledo’s premier, competitive 10k tradition held annually on Memorial Day weekend with prize purse totaling $4,500, plus free Saucony shoes to all first place age group winners.

This counter-clockwise route is scenic and challenging, crossing two downtown bridges and running along the renovated waterfront. Join us to remember, show respect and honor the brave men and women who have died while in service to our country — they paid the ultimate sacrifice so we can live free. This day we salute them.
