ONE OF OHIO'S TOP HALF MARATHONS
RUN ALONG THE MIGHTY MAUMEE RIVER • SINCE 2017
RUN THE 419™ SERIES EVENT #4 of 4

The Toledo Mini Half Marathon and Quarter Marathon is the same great Midwest race you've come to love since 2017, but with a name change from Muddy Mini to better connect our T-Town roots in Northwest Ohio with runners from around the region. Toledo's long running history, combined with scenic courses and world-class amateur athletes in our midst, makes it the perfect destination city for competitive road racing.

Toledo Mini is a scenic point-to-point half marathon starting in the uptown district of Maumee, Ohio, voted the best hometown in Ohio. Sidecut Metropark is your waypoint to U-turn and run back along River Rd, through residential Historic Maumee homes, past the Toledo Country Club, the Toledo Zoo, and into downtown Toledo. An exclusive finish awaits you in the outfield of the Toledo Mud Hens ballpark, voted one of the best minor league stadiums in America.

Signup for all four events as part of the Run the 419™ Series to secure the current rates for each, and receive a custom series item after the final race. FAQ: You must signup as the series to receive the bonus item.

Where do I board buses to the start line?2022-06-17T15:44:09-04:00

You must be in line no later than 6:50am to guarantee your spot on a TARTA bus.

  1. Board buses on Washington St. at S. St. Clair St. on the south side of Fifth Third Field.
    • 6:15AM to 6:40AM — You must be in line by 6:40am to guarantee a spot on a bus.

  3. Make sure to exit the bus at the correct start line

TOLEDO MINI RUNNER TESTIMONIALS
Great job Dave's and Run Toledo! Fun Race Overall.
Cody S., Loveland, Colorado
Fantastic job! Love the free finish line photo. Great perk of doing the race. Definitely don’t feel “nickel and dimed” like I have felt at many other races. Also the tech fabric for the shirts is awesome!
Allie T., Silverdale, Washington
FABULOUS race and activities! Our family LOVES Runtoledo Races and events!
Misty S., Temperance, Michigan
Thanks for a great experience!
Bonnie G., Adrian, Michigan

I loved the race. I'd like to give event organizers a huge shout out. Everything worked so smoothly. Extremely high quality, and I know it starts at the top. I have now ran several Run Toledo events, and I have to drive in from Fort Wayne to do them, and it's never a disappointment. Even when the weather doesn't cooperate, I always enjoy the events in Toledo. I'll continue to come back simply because it's hard to find better events in my area (and I'll drive four+ hours one way from Fort Wayne to do something fun). Keep it up, and thank you!

Frank M., Ft. Wayne, Indiana
Sarah Pirolli was my pacer and she did great. All runners were very supportive. Water stations, volunteers and workers were awesome.
Lisa B., Napoleon, Ohio
It was nice that race photos were provided for free. I really enjoyed my experience at this race. It was one of my fastest half marathons in a while, so of course that makes it extra nice! I wrote a recap for my blog if anyone is interested in reading it. Thank you for a great race day, and hopefully I'll get a chance to return in the future.
Janet B., Rochester Hills, Michigan

A wonderful event. I travel across the country running races and this one is one of the best! My favorite has always been the Broad Street 10 miler in Philadelphia, but the Toledo Mini is much better! The race compares to the Shamrock Half-Marathon in Virginia Beach, Va...Great start line and finish line! The size of the race is manageable. The band is GREAT! I loved that we could walk from the stadium into Hensville and back unencumbered. The tables were a nice addition. The lower entry fee for kids was a great idea...it makes it an affordable family event. No other event does this! One of the best races in the in the 50 states!

Are dogs allowed?2022-04-02T15:41:30-04:00

Are fans allowed in the stadium?2022-04-02T15:46:09-04:00

Yes, fans are allowed in the outfield bleachers to watch runners cross the finish line. This gives them a great vantage point for taking photos and video as you enter the field, and our Emcee and DJ will keep them entertained until you arrive.

Are strollers allowed?2022-04-02T15:48:15-04:00

Yes. Please be extra aware of runners around your stroller while on the course.

How do I support the charity?2022-04-02T16:38:00-04:00

BENEFITTING MAUMEE CHAMBER SCHOLARSHIP FUND
This event is produced with great collaboration with the Maumee Chamber of Commerce. Through money raised, the Maumee Chamber is able to award scholarships to youth in the area. All donations go directly to this charity partner.

We encourage you to donate directly during the registration process, and share the fundraiser on all your social profiles. Anyone can donate directly to the Maumee Chamber Scholarship Fund by visiting the donation page here.

How do I transfer my bib to another person?2022-04-02T15:52:44-04:00

The process for transferring your entry/bib to another person is easily managed through your personal runsignup.com/profile. You initiate the process and the person receiving your bib must then complete it online by confirming the entry waiver in order to pick up a bib and race. Learn how here: Video Tutorial

How do I transfer to a different event?2022-04-02T15:57:25-04:00

If you decide you’d like to switch races from that which you’re already registered, you can do so up to 14 days prior to the scheduled race day. The process for transferring your entry to a different Toledo Mini event is easily managed through your personal runsignup.com/profile. This process is managed online by you. Additional processing fees may be necessary, per event. Follow this tutorial to walk you through the event transfer process.

How do I view my photos?2022-04-02T16:10:14-04:00

All of your Toledo Mini photographs are free to download and share. We’ll have photographers at the start lines, on the course and at the finish line to capture all the runners in action. We’ll publish all the images online in a few different locations within 24 hours of the finish. Be sure to follow us online to get realtime notifications when they’re available.

  1. Searchable images will be available directly from your results page — if your bib is visible in the photos, they’ll appear directly under your results.
  2. Setting photos will be published to our Facebook page and other social profiles.
  3. The full album will be published in our Flickr Photostream.

Do you want to be featured in a future Toledo Mini promotion? Keep an eye out for our photographers and express your joy in the moment. We may just use that image somewhere.

Tips for being seen by photographers:

  1. Make sure your bib is fully visible on the front of your torso.
  2. Run in the open. Don’t nest behind a bunch of other runners in front of you.
  3. Expect photos to be taken 50 yards to 5 feet from the photographer. Some photographers will use telephoto lenses, and others will use wide angle lenses, depending on the setting.
  4. Make a scene when you see the photographers.

Finish line video will also be available directly from your results page. We upload HD video, so keep checking your results for the 24-72 hours after the race to view yours.

How do I view my results?2022-04-02T16:19:09-04:00

Results begin posting online immediately upon the first runners finishing each event. Your bib will have a QR code on it for you to scan with your smartphone that will take you directly to your results. You can also navigate to the Toledo Mini overall results page in your browser. The results feed may take a couple minutes to refresh before your time shows.

Results are not “official” until final review by our timers after the race is complete. If you notice a discrepancy in your results, please visit the packet pickup/shirt exchange table on N. St. Clare St. and our timing staff there will take a look. Please do NOT go to the finish line timing tent.

If you place overall, or in your age group, awards will be available within a short time after the race is complete.

Is bag drop available?2022-04-02T15:02:43-04:00

Yes, bag drop is available near the start line of each event. Place your items in a sealed bag that you can easily identify and we’ll transport it back to Downtown Toledo for you to retrieve on St. Clair St. after you finish the race.
