CLEVELAND – (November 21, 2023) — The Cleveland Marathon announced today its Black Friday and Cyber Monday registration discounts for the 2024 season. Beginning Friday, November 24 through Monday, November 27, registrations for all distances will be discounted 25% using the code RUN4SAVINGS. Race weekend is set for May 18 – 19, 2024.

“Let’s talk turkey. Black Friday is the perfect time to begin thinking about signing up for a big race next year. This discount is a great chance for runners of every background to get an unbelievable price to Run the Land,” said Race Director Ralph Staph. “We’ve got pumpkin pie behind us and a season of holiday parties ahead, so a big race to train for in the Spring can help kickstart your New Year’s resolutions to get in shape.”

The Cleveland Marathon is the region’s premiere distance running event. One of the nation’s oldest marathons, the race continues to dazzle runners as they snake through historic streets, pass national landmarks like the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, and enjoy awe-inspiring views of Lake Erie.

“You know, we looked at Black Friday and thought this is a great opportunity,” said Executive Director Jack Staph. “You have people lining up early, outside, in the cold, to run ahead of everyone else and grab prizes. I mean, that sounds like marathon people to me.”

No matter your experience level, the Cleveland Marathon has an event designed for everyone.
