You can now run in the Akron Marathon and support First Serve! Not a runner? That’s ok – all experience levels are welcome. Learn how you can support First Serve while running in the Akron Marathon in September, including registering as part of a relay team or as an individual. At the event, we will:

  • Hear how you can go from not running at all to conquering an entire race from expert and Vertical Runner store owner, Vince Rucci.
  • Enjoy healthy smoothies from Vitamix.
  • Enter for a chance to win a variety of prizes, including a Vitamix and running shoes from Vertical Runner.
