We regret to inform you that the 25th annual Steamtown Marathon has been cancelled due to the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19.  The marathon will be providing full refunds of entry fees to all registered runners starting the week of June 22nd.  Our registrars will be processing each refund individually, which will take quite a bit of time.  We respectfully request your patience in this matter.

Entry fees will not be carried-forward to next year’s race.

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