CANTON, OHIO – The Pro Football Hall of Fame and Run to You Racing are bringing a new race series to Canton featuring a 5K, 6K, 10K and a Half Marathon.
Dubbed the Pro Football Hall of Fame Race Series, the events beginning in 2024 will include four run/walk races that aim to improve the health, wellness and fitness around the area. Each event will be staged on courses through different parts of Canton, including the Pro Football Hall of Fame, the Hall of Fame Village, downtown Canton, Stadium Park, Centennial Plaza and several neighborhoods.
“The Hall of Fame is truly excited to bring this type of event to Canton,” said Jim Porter, president of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. “For those making the trip to Canton, I have no doubt that during the Race Series each participant will experience what makes Canton so great.”
The Race Series kicks off in late April 2024 and will conclude with a two-day event at the end of August in downtown Canton.
“We are excited to produce a truly unique race series that blends the best of in-person and virtual events, offering options for participants of all ages and abilities here in Canton and around the country,” said Jim Chaney, Executive Director for Run to You Racing.
2024 Pro Football Hall of Fame Race Series:

The combined distances of the four races equals 26.2 miles – the length of a full marathon.
