The 2020 Garden of Life Palm Beaches Marathon has been canceled.

"Because everyone's health, safety, and wellness is always our highest priority, we have made the decision not to run the 2020 Garden of Life Palm Beaches Marathon," said Garden of Life President Brian Ray. "However, we’re looking forward to bringing everyone back together again for an amazing in-person event in 2021."

The event was originally scheduled to happen on December 11-13 in Downtown West Palm Beach.

Those who registered for the marathon have the option to participate in a virtual event, defer their entry to next year's event, or have their entry fee donated to Special Olympics Florida.

Runners participating in the virtual race will run at their own place and time in December. Participants will receive a race shirt, finisher medal, virtual race bib and finisher certificate. Virtual runners will also be invited to participate in interactive Zoom sessions with experts on running-related topics.
