The health and safety of our runners will always be the highest priority for the Akron Marathon.
Given the current outbreak of COVID-19, the Akron Marathon and its medical team from Summa Health are working with infectious disease specialists who are up-to-date on this outbreak. We are also working with local and state officials to understand the newest information and its implications, and the Akron Marathon will be updating protocols as new information becomes available.
Currently, there are no schedule changes at this time. We are working on registration/participation options in accordance with the CDC (Center for Disease Control) and local government guidelines and will provide those options in an update 30-days prior to the race you registered for.
In the meantime, we advise that our runners take general precautions that help prevent the spread of viruses and illness. These measures include 1) coughing and sneezing into the bend of your elbow and not your hand, 2) washing hands frequently (for at least 20 seconds), and 3) staying home when you are sick—especially with a respiratory symptoms or fever.
We will be posting additional details, as they become available, that are pertinent to our community on our website and our social media channels.
