Volunteers are essential to the success of our event. Help us craft a world-class experience for our runners by volunteering your time and talents!

As a volunteer for the Akron Marathon Race Series presented by Summa Health, you will have the opportunity to make a significant contribution to your community, to meet new people, to share your skills and talents, and to help make our races successful world-class events for runners, their families, the spectators, and for the City of Akron. We are looking for groups as well as individuals to help make our events a success!
