REGISTRATION

We had to update our registration process this year to accommodate the deferrals and the tiered registration process. You will have to register for each event individually. If you register and complete all three races you will automatically qualify for race series perks!
 

Please review the following 2021 policies carefully prior to registering: 

  • No refunds or deferrals will be offered. 
  • We will have both in-person and virtual options for all events.
  • We will open registration with lower caps in all events. If the state of the pandemic subsides, additional spots may become available.  
  • If the 2021 Akron Marathon Race Series presented by Summa Health in-person event(s) are canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all participants will be automatically converted to the virtual event. There will be no refunds or deferments offered for the event – no exceptions. 
  • Each participant will need to adhere to the Operational & Safety Guidelines.

Registration FAQS

Q: I deferred my 2020 registration. How do I register for 2021 and what are my options?

A: All participants who deferred their 2020 registration will be automatically uploaded into the same in-person event for 2021. You will receive an email on Wednesday, January 13, 2021 with instructions on how to claim your registration, sign your waiver and answer additional questions. Please note your 2021 registration is not finalized until you complete the instructions in the email. If you did not receive an email, please email info@akronmarathon.org.

Participants who deferred their 2020 registration will be registered for the same event they originally registered for in 2020. If you wish to register for a different event or participate virtually, please email info@akronmarathon.org.

Q: Transferring Sub-Events/Switching events (example: move from the Full to the Half Marathon)

A: If you would like to transfer your registration to another sub-event, please follow the steps below:

  1. Click the event registration page National Interstate 8k&1Mile / Goodyear Half&10k / FirstEnergy Akron Marathon, Half & Relay.
  2. From our registration page click on “Transfer” from the left or right side navigation bars.
  3. Once logged into your Race Roster account, click “Transfer to a New Sub-Event” in the blue box and complete the steps as directed. If necessary, click here for detailed directions on how to transfer from one sub-event to another from Race Roster.

Please note there will be a $10 fee to transfer to a new sub-event + any applicable change in registration fees.

EXAMPLE:

If I am registered for Half Marathon & want to switch to the Marathon I would go to the FirstEnergy Akron Marathon, Half Marathon & Team Relay Race Roster registration page, click “Transfer”, then click “Transfer to a New Sub-Event” follow the prompts. I would pay $10.00 transfer fee as well as the difference between the 2 subevents. So if I paid $90.00 for the Half Marathon & the Marathon is currently $105.00 I would pay $15 difference plus the $10.00 transfer fee making it $25.00.

Q: How do I transfer my race entry to another runner?

A: If you would like to transfer your registration to a new participant, please follow the steps below:

  1. Click the event registration page National Interstate 8k&1Mile / Goodyear HalfMarathon&10k  / FirstEnergy Akron Marathon ,Half & Relay.
  2. From our registration page click on “Transfer” from the left or right side navigation bars.
  3. Once logged into your Race Roster account, click “Transfer to a New Participant” in the blue box and complete the steps as directed. If necessary, click here for detailed directions on how to transfer your registration to a new participant from Race Roster.Please note the NEW participant will pay a $10 transfer fee. The original participant will NOT receive a refund. The exchange of monies is between the original participant and the new participant. 

EXAMPLE:

If I want to transfer my Marathon registration to my friend who is not registered I would go to the FirstEnergy Akron Marathon, Half Marathon & Team Relay Race Roster registration page, click “Transfer” then click “Transfer to New Participant” follow the prompts. The new runner will get an email with a link to complete the transfer. That new runner will pay the $10.00 fee. The previous runner will NOT be refunded. It is up to the runners on how they want to handle the money.
