6th Panama City Beach Marathon


Tuesday, September 1, 2020 – The Panama City Beach Chamber event organizers have worked for months to find a way to safely produce the PCB Marathon, scheduled for Saturday, December 5th. Unfortunately, we have had to make the difficult decision to not hold an in-person or virtual race and instead reschedule the event until 2021. This was not an easy decision to make, but due to the challenges of staging an event of this scale at this time and out of concern for the safety of event participants, volunteers, event staff and spectators we feel it is the best decision. We understand that this is a challenging time for everyone, and the cancellation will be disappointing news to many. In light of this decision, registered participants for the 2020 race will be deferred to our 2021 at no cost. We appreciate your understanding and look forward to giving the running community an opportunity to run through paradise alongside our award-winning beaches in 2021!

Run through paradise in 2020 alongside our award-winning beaches in the Marathon, Half-Marathon, 5K or Kid’s Fun Run. The Panama City Beach Chamber of Commerce is proud to host the Panama City Beach Marathon presented by Visit Panama City Beach and sponsored by Verizon. Set for Saturday, December 5, 2020, the 26.2 mile race has become a staple for the community and helps attract thousands of both residents and visitors to Panama City Beach. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Haney Technical Center to provide educational opportunities for students and the training necessary to meet the needs in today’s changing global workplace.
