We are excited to welcome the Akron Area YMCA as the presenting sponsor of the Akron Marathon’s Health & Fitness Expo! 

The Expo is an opportunity for runners and fitness enthusiasts to pick up their race packets, including their bib number and timing chip, and to browse a variety of exhibitors offering products and services related to health and fitness. At the expo, participants can also attend sessions led by experts in the field of running and fitness, learn about the latest trends in athletic gear and equipment, and sample products from vendors. The expo is free and open to the public, and it provides an opportunity for participants and their supporters to come together and share their passion for fitness and running.
