The Merrimac Miracle Organization is pleased to host the 4th Annual London OH Marathon as a fundraiser for Merri-Mac Park. We are raising funds to further improve the park by adding play equipment, recreational paths, sports fields, etc.

At Darby Creek (for the full marathon), you’ll turn around and head back to London! Did we mention this race is flat? It is crazy flat!
Both the marathon (OH21006DH) and half-marathon (OH21007DH) courses are USATF certified! This course is perfect for that PR or BQ attempt!
