A heavily themed, family friendly Marathon, Half Marathon, and 5K on Halloween.

The Inaugural Haunted Forest Marathon is scheduled to run on Sunday, October 31st, 2021 in Canal Fulton, Ohio. The event will be the culmination of events in Canal Fulton throughout the month of October. The race will consist of a full marathon (26.2 miles), a half marathon (13.1 miles), and a 5K (3.1 miles). The event will be heavily themed with a spooky starting line, tombstone mile markers, zombie water stations, and props all along the course. We will be running on the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath from St Helena Heritage Park.

We expect the event to be highly attended and newsworthy. Our position is that we want runners to attend the Akron Marathon, Columbus Marathon, etc. as they normally do. We then want them to run our race as a “Second Chance” for a PR / leverage their Fall fitness.
