The Next Big Thing is COming To Akron
The Akron Marathon is proud to announce the launch of the Rubber City Race Series for 2015. Featuring two new race dates, every event will include the same world-class treatment you’ve come to expect from the Akron Marathon over the past 12 years. Best of all, the series is designed to coincide with training benchmarks and will include cumulative scoring and incentives building up to our marquee September race! Check out the series details.
Be a part of it
The Akron Marathon Rubber City Race Series was designed to encourage participation for all fitness levels. With distances ranging from 1-mile to the marathon, pick your series package that suits your needs. Train hard and we'll get you to the finish line in world-class style. I want to be a part of the next big thing!
The kickoff of the inaugural Series culminates with an on-field finish at InfoCision Stadium followed by the Thirsty Dog Blues & Brews Festival. Your journey to the Blue Line begins here.
We proudly leveraged the history of Akron when naming our new Series. That’s why the next leg on the road to our marquee event starts and finishes in the heart of the Rubber City.
The day you’ve been training for is finally here. Every early morning, every hill, every blister has led you to the highlight event of the series. We bet the reality is better than the dream.
