The Marathon Games are Rounds of athletic events which take place in The Florida Keys.  The organizers of each of the different Rounds is TV88, with the assistance of those Florida Keys Non Profits who participate by either competing or volunteering.

The Participating Non Profits benefit by financially sharing in all the registration fees, and by giving their staff and volunteers an exceptional time out with friends and family.

The latest Round of The Marathon Games was The Marathon Pentathlon, which took place on April 13, 2019 at Banana Bay Resort.

All Participating Non Profits either:

1. Competed with a team

The Marathon Wild Bird Center
Florida Keys Children’s Shelter

2. Was part of the Production Crew
