The annual Akron Marathon is history for another year.
Of the 14,000 runners that registered for the event, over 13,000 participated. The most runners took part in the the team relay, where over 5,500 runners participated.
Race Director Jim Barnett says the weather was perfect for Saturday's race. Barnett says he's heard estimates that over 100,000 people viewed the race from somewhere along the 'Blue Line'.
Next year's race, which will be the 10th annual, will be run on September 29th, 2012. Barnett is hoping to increase the number of participants in the races, as well as the number of volunteers and business sponsors.
You may not realize it, but there are over 3,000 volunteers who work with the Akron Marathon to insure that 'Race Day' is something special.
