Property Summary
In 1999, the making of a world-class running marathon in Akron had begun, but the idea for the event was seeded in 1985 when Akron businessman and community leader Steve Marks ran his first marathon in Columbus. That experience gave him a first-hand view of the potential for a sporting event to boost community pride, involvement and unity, while also contributing to the health, quality of life and economic vitality of a community. With the help of his wife Jeannine and the support of many others, Steve began his journey to establish the Akron Marathon. In 2002, the Akron Marathon Charitable Corporation was established and a year later, the Akron Marathon made its debut. Today – nine marathons later, the Akron Marathon has earned the respect that Steve Marks sought for the race. It has experienced tremendous growth and is recognized to be among the top road races in the United States.
