The Steamtown Marathon is tentatively set to open registration on April 1, provided the United States is on track with the national deployment of the COVID vaccine. The marathon race committee will continue to monitor the progress made in the fight against COVID and will adjust the opening of registration if appropriate.

We look forward to seeing you at the starting line for the 25th running of the Steamtown Marathon on Sunday, October 10, 2021.

The 25th Annual Steamtown Marathon will be held on October 10, 2021.

The Steamtown Marathon benefits the children and residents of St. Joseph’s Center, Scranton.  Thanks to the generosity of our runners and sponsors, the Marathon has donated $2 million to St. Joseph’s since 1996.
