Run for a Cause

Planning to run Akron? Why not join a charity team and cross the finish line knowing that you accomplished more than a personal goal! We have partnered with CrowdRise this year.  CrowdRise is an impact site started by actor and philanthropist, Edward Norton, designed to make fundraising for the Akron Marathon really fun.  Click here to leverage your run to raise money for one of our awesome charities or another cause you care about all under our unified Akron Marathon fundraising page. It’s incredibly easy to join and all the money you raise contributes to our goal of raising a crazy amount of money for charity in this year’s race.  Go to Akron’s event page on CrowdRise to start a fundraiser, donate or learn more today.
