Spectating DONNA

Not in to running? Can you ring a cowbell? You’re in! Join the DONNA Curb Crew.

DONNA Marathon Weekend returns February 2 – 4, 2024. This year’s theme, Destination: Hope, reinforces DONNA Marathon Weekend as a destination race that appeals to both local and international runners, while envisioning a future defined by something brighter than any one place or race –– a future where love always wins out over fear. It celebrates the progress and resilience required to reach the finish line we all believe is possible: a world without breast cancer.

We will need ALL of your cowbells.
