Palm Beaches Marathon to run on Palm Beach

Palm Beaches Marathon

For the first time the Palm Beaches Marathon will be run on Palm Beach. The island's council approved the race to run over the Flagler Bridge, wind south along the Cocoanut Row bike trail, then cutting down to the Lake Trail, before crossing back at the Royal Park Bridge. Honda Classic Executive Director Ken Kennerly has taken over the race this year. The race will be run on December 3rd.

In a release, Kennerly said: "Palm Beach is one of the most iconic and desirable places in the world and the opportunity to include the island in the new course is an enormous enhancement for local runners, those who will visit from around the country and for the race. Raising the bar of this race is my premier goal as Palm Beach and Palm Beach County deserve the very best. I can't thank the Town Council enough for its belief in our vision.

"We employed the same strategy when I took over The Honda Classic, which has seen enormous growth and recognition as becoming one of the premier events on the PGA TOUR. Being able to include Palm Beach island in a segment of the FITTEAM Palm Beaches Marathon is a big step in the right direction toward our efforts to create an elite International running experience."
