Pensacola Marathon Sells Out for 2nd Straight Year

The growth of the running industry continues to impact the Pensacola Marathon as the full marathon category has sold out for the second straight year.  The Pensacola Marathon Presented by Publix also features a half marathon and relay category.


Only 400 half marathon spots and 50 team slots remain at this point.


In total, nearly 2,500 people will participate in this year’s event on Sunday, Nov. 10, which is a 30% increase over last year’s registration numbers.


“We are pleased with the growth and support of this event from the runners and community,” said Ray Palmer, Executive Director of the Pensacola Sports Association, the event’s managing company.  “Nearly 40% of the runners are from out of town which speaks volumes to our race management and our community.  Runners enjoy this event and visiting Pensacola and are telling their friends about it.”


For complete race information and to register for one of the few half marathon or relay spots, runners can visit or call 850-434-2800.
