Welcome Runners!

FACT: 26.2 with DONNA The National Marathon to Finish Breast Cancer is the only U.S. marathon dedicated solely to raising funds to finish breast cancer.

We would be tickled pink to see you in Jacksonville this February! This year, we will be doing more than just running - we are celebrating being 10 years closer to the finish. The 10th Anniversary DONNA Marathon Weekend will be held February 10 – 12, 2017.

Since its inaugural race in 2008, The DONNA Foundation has raised more than $4.5 million to provide financial assistance for the critical needs of families living with breast cancer and to fund the Mayo Clinic Breast Cancer Translational Genomics Program. The weekend’s events bring thousands of spectators each year to cheer for runners from all 50 states and more than 20 countries. DONNA offers several reasons to visit Florida’s First Coast, including options to run a full or half marathon, team relay or multi-event challenge. This landmark year will also introduce the NEW 10K Run, in addition to the ever-popular 5K and Family Fun Run presented by the Jaguars Foundation, on Saturday. Regardless of the distance selected, the DONNA Marathon Weekend offers a truly unique experience, encouraging participants to get outdoors, lace up those sneakers and help finish breast cancer – one step at a time.

With over 22 miles of white sand beaches and an average temperature of 72 degrees, we are the perfect destination for you this winter. See you soon!
