Cumberland has been a great host for the Cumberland C&O Towpath Marathon and Half Marathon the past three years. Nevertheless Altis has decided to put this race on hiatus at least for 2018 to conduct the inaugural Hancock Marathon and Half Marathon using 6.56 miles of the Towpath. At Cumberland the goal has been to get 6.56 miles of towpath/trail to use as a course and Altis could not make that happen.
Please go to http://altisendurance.com/events/hancock-marathon-half-marathon to check out the Hancock Marathon and Half Marathon.
The fourth edition of the Cumberland C&O Towpath Marathon and Half Marathon is TBD.
The race start/finish is located on the C&O Canal Towpath at the Canal Place located at 13 Canal Street Cumberland, MD 21502. The marathon starts at 7:30AM and the half marathon starts at 8:00AM.
“This is a wonderful series of friendly races with tremendous organization in beautiful locations that runners need to experience.”
