Team Relay

The Akron Marathon Team Relay is the largest 5-person team relay event in the country with 5,500 participants. This event follows the same course as the marathon, but breaks down the distance into five legs.  Team members must pass a slap bracelet to one another at each relay exchange zone. Team members can join the Finisher Festival on-field at Canal Park Stadium to celebrate as their final team member crosses the finish line!
