Join us for the marquee event of the Akron Children’s Hospital Akron Marathon Race Series, the Akron Marathon, Half Marathon, & Team Relay presented by FirstEnergy! Runners will experience an unforgettable start inside the historic grounds of Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens before taking an exclusive foot tour of the City of Akron. The course winds through beautiful West Akron neighborhoods, crosses the iconic All-America bridge into North Hill, takes runners down the all-new Main St. and into the Firestone Park neighborhoods before returning to downtown on the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail where a world-class finish inside Canal Park Stadium and popular Finisher Festival on the field awaits!

Virtual Race Swag
Typically, teams must be complete in order to participate in race day, however, you do not need to have a complete team to participate in the virtual event. You can participate as an individual and choose which relay distance you want to run! Relay runners can run the same leg/distance, even if you are on the same team.
If you are not joining a team, but would like to participate individually, register under Create Your Team.
