Each year since 2003 the Akron Marathon has hosted an international, world-class marathon  in Akron, Ohio.  The Akron Marathon and related events contributes to the health and fitness of thousands of Akron residents and participants of all ages in addition to building civic pride, volunteerism and community spirit.  The Akron Marathon is excited to announce plans for two new races in 2015.  These races will be a part of our newly branded Akron Marathon Rubber City Race Series.  The 2015 Akron Marathon Rubber City Race Series will attract over 20,000 participants (80% from within a 2-hour radius) and generate an economic impact of over $8 million.  Additionally, over 3,000 race volunteers will serve their community and over 120,000 spectators will enjoy the accomplishments of many that benefit the entire community. 

We invite you to be part of the thrill of race day and consider being a sponsor! Custom sponsorship packages are available. Please email us for additional information.
