Akron Trail Marathon

499 Memorial Parkway

Akron, OH Marathon, Half Marathon, 10 K

Registration closes: Thu, Jul 11 @ 11:59PM ET

See the best of Akron, Ohio!

What if there was a Marathon that started downtown and then showed off the Metro Parks? The inaugural Akron Trail Marathon does just that! You will start at Memorial Parkway trailhead, run a quick out & back into the city, then head to Summit Metro Parks. Along the way you will get to experience a beautiful hilly section of the Towpath Trail that heads out of the city, the historical locks, the Mustill Store, and waterfalls!
The course follows the locks out of downtown and then heads north on the Towpath. Remainder of course is being reworked due to bridge closure in Gorge Metro Park. Half marathon and 10k follow slightly different routes, starting at Memorial trailhead.
***Update**** The 1/2 marathon course and 10k courses will remain the same as 2021. The full marathon will run the 1/2 marathon course twice.
***This course is run partially on park trails which have roots and rocks***

Water Stops

We will plan on having about 6-8 water stops on the marathon route, 3-4 on the half marathon route, and 1 on the 10k route. We will have water & sports drink, and gels at the water stops; snacks for the full and half at the halfway aid station. It is advised that you carry a handheld water bottle, as it will most likely be hot & humid in mid-July. We would also like to use as few cups as possible to help out our environment.
***There are fewer water stops on this course than on a road course. Please be prepared***
