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.

Runners from all 50 states and more than 20 countries travel to North Florida’s coast each year to experience DONNA Marathon Weekend. Whether you’re traveling nationally, internationally, or driving in from the surrounding Jacksonville area, we encourage you to book your airfare and hotel rooms well in advance. Be sure to take advantage of special offers and rates from our amazing partners. PLEASE REFERENCE “DONNA” WHEN MAKING ALL TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS TO ENSURE YOU GET THE BEST DEALS!
