Spectating DONNA

Turn Up The Pink

Not in to running? Can you ring a cowbell? You’re in! Join the DONNA Curb Crew. DONNA Marathon Weekend and all of the events of the DONNA Fearless Series have returned with live, in-person events and we cannot wait to enjoy them. Together. We will need ALL of your cowbells.


As we come back together after a challenging year of uncertainty, it is important to realize how strong we are “Together” — which is the theme for the coming year’s events. We are eager to welcome patients, survivors and their supporters back in person to not only work together toward finishing breast cancer, but to be together to celebrate the resilience of the human spirit as the DONNA Marathon celebrates its 15th anniversary as The National Marathon to Finish Breast Cancer. #DONNATogether

February 4 – 6, 2022, DONNA Marathon Weekend will include a 5K presented by Equitable Advisors, Anniversary 15K Relay presented by FIS, Half Marathon presented by Genentech, Marathon, Ultramarathon, Event Challenges and Health & Wellness Expo that will again fill the City of Jacksonville and the Beaches of Northeast Florida with thousands of runners from all 50 states and many countries.
