Participation Scoring                                                    

Participation points will be awarded based on what event distance you complete. Participants registered for all three event dates will be entered into and qualify for series prizes with no additional registration fees. It is required to compete on all three race dates in order to be eligible for series prizes, and age group awards are based on your age at the time of the marquee event – the FirstEnergy Akron Marathon.
