The Paris-Toledo connection

What does Toledo have in common with Paris, Leipzig and Manila?

Going down the list of Longest Running Marathons on the Association of Road Racing Statisticians Web site, we find our own Glass City Marathon has shared a 29th anniversary with Paris, Leipzig, Lamone Russi (Italy), the Hogeye Fayetteville (Arkansas), Manitoba, Manila and the venerable Grandma s Marathon in Duluth, Minnesota. Not bad company.

The 30th Glass City Marathon is 50 days away (Sunday, April 2).

The longest running marathon is Boston (1897-1917, 1919-2005), which will be staged for the 109th time on April 17.

Run with this

• Running is a big question mark that s there each and every day. It asks you, Are you going to be a wimp or are you going to be strong today?

Peter Maher, Irish-Canadian Olympian and sub-2:12 marathoner
