Akron Marathon Starts at Stan Hywet!

September 28, 2019

There’s a new start line for this year’s Akron Children’s Hospital Akron Marathon Race Series — Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens.

The move for the start of the marathon, half marathon and team relay, all to be held on Sept. 28, from its original downtown Akron start is not in reaction to construction anywhere along the course, but because race officials said they wanted to improve the event. The finish line will remain at Canal Park Stadium. Learn more

The estate opens to the general public for tours at 1:30pm.
