On your marks, get set, and go… to our 40th Annual Marathon on Kiawah Island, where 26.2 miles (or 13.1 miles) has never looked so beautiful. Enjoy the ultimate marathon experience and stay at Kiawah Island Golf Resort. Your body, mind and soles of your feet will thank you! Now entering its 40th year, the Kiawah Island Golf Resort Marathon starts and finishes in beautiful East Beach Village. Along the way, you’ll enjoy spectacular views of maritime forests, marshes, and grand homes, as you run throughout the Island community. The only thing more wonderful than the scenery is the moment when you cross the finish line, after completing your full or half marathon! The Kiawah Island Golf Resort Marathon and Half Marathon courses are both Certified and Sanctioned by the USA Track & Field Organization and the Marathon is a qualifier for the Boston Marathon.
