It’s 4:30 a.m. and I’m standing on a dark street in downtown Akron waiting for three FedEx Custom Critical trucks to arrive. In just over an hour the street I am standing on will be buzzing with excitement and crowded with people talking and stretching. It’s race day. The Akron Marathon will be starting soon and FedEx Custom Critical plays a large role in ensuring a positive race experience for the nearly 13,000 runners expected.
