The annual DONNA Marathon is Sunday, Feb. 9. Runners love our community because of all of our spirited supporters and curb crews who come out and cheer them on as they complete their journey to the finish line.
The marathon route will be the same as last year, with the entire half marathon (and first half of the full marathon) being run in Atlantic Beach. As a result, access in Atlantic Beach may be inhibited for up to seven hours beginning at 7:30 a.m. Sunday.
