Dear Neighbor,


We want to personally thank you in advance for your support of our HOF Marathon event. We are scheduled to run this year on Sunday, May 7th starting in Downtown Canton. Our scheduled start time is 7:00am and all runners will be done by 2:00pm. This year our course flows through the City of Canton and parts of Avondale, Ridgedale, and Shrine Village.

Our main mission this year is gaining neighborhood support and having you be involved in on the fun. We believe this marathon is a way to showcase the City of Canton, Plain Township, Stark County, and our great neighborhoods. We would love for you to volunteer your time cheering on participants as they pass your residence and are kindly asking for your support and cooperation on race day.

Below is a street by street guide to help you plan for the arrival of the first runner and the last runner. In many cases, we will be running on both sides of the road. If you need to leave your homes, please do so with caution. We are going to instruct our runners to give way to any vehicle that is on the course. PLEASE DO NOT PARK ON THE STREET DURING THE HOURS THAT RUNNERS WILL BE PASSING BY.

The marathon is truly a community event and requires a community effort. Again, we deeply appreciate your support as we safely return to running. As a member of our community you truly play an important role in our overall success. We look forward to seeing your cheering efforts on race day. Let us know if we can provide anything to help including signs and cowbells!

Thank you for your support,

Jim Chaney

Executive Director
