The Marathon Pentathlon, 2017
Swim Kayak SUP Golf Drive Foot Race
The Marathon Games is the biggest fundraising event put on by MarathonFlorida.com TV88. All registration fees go directly to our non-profit Partners. It is also a beneficial event for us locals who enjoy having a blast of a morning doing some good clean Florida Keys athletic events.
Due to Hurricane Irma, the next round of The Marathon Games, The Pentathlon, has been postponed. . . . Not cancelled – just postponed a bit.
Our venue, The Florida Keys Country Club will not be ready to host the Games again for a while, and we are looking at other options.
We are in discussions with the City of Key Colony Beach and a couple of its resorts in the City of KCB about hosting the next Marathon Pentathlon there.
Hosting the next round of The Pentathlon in KCB would allow us to co-promote The Marathon Games along with The City of Key Colony Beach, which we are the webmaster and official videographer for. www.KeyColonyBeach.net.
Moving of the venue and time of this year’s Pentathlon will take some additional time and preparation. So anyone in the community who is interested in helping out in any manner with the organizing of this event, is asked to drop a line to help@TheMarathonGames.com
