I am starting this thread to see if there is an interest in forming a SP team (or two) for the Akron Marathon relay on Saturday, September 29th. There are five legs: 3.9, 4.8, 7.5, 4.5 and 5.5 miles. I will tell you now that the course is not flat. It's not JASR hills, but there are some rolling roads for you to run on. Registration is $40 per person. Here is some info from their website.
Please let me know if you are interested. Maybe we can get something together. I am also posting this on the Spark Cleveland team. www.akronmarathon.org
