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 repeat the 1/2 marathon twice.
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, gels, and some snacks for the full and half at some of the aid stations. 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.
