Akron Marathon sees a first

By September 27, 2016Run

The esteemed marathon hails from the great state of Ohio, but here’s a fun fact: nobody from Ohio has ever won the race. Well, that is until 2016.

Ohio.com shared some great news:

After years of racers from outside the country dominating the Akron Marathon, a man from the United States has finally emerged victorious.

And he’s from Ohio.

And he broke a course record while he was at it.

Beneath sunny skies, Tony Migliozzi of North Canton was the first American-born male to win the Akron Marathon, in its 14th year, with a time of 2 hours, 21 minutes and 41 seconds.

Congratulations to all the finishers! Swiftwick had a great presence with our dealer, Vertical Runner-Wooster at the Expo and several athletes cross that finish line!
