Pensacola, FL – In wake of Hurricane Sandy which devastated the northeast resulting in the cancellation of the ING New York Marathon, the Pensacola Marathon sends our thoughts and
prayers to those affected by the storm. Pensacola and the Gulf Coast have experienced terrible, event changing storms as well, and are familiar with what the people affected are going through. We also know the importance of all the hard work and training the runners prepared for such an event, which is why we are opening slots into the 9th running of the Pensacola Marathon on Sunday, Nov. 11 for displaced New York Marathon runners.
The Pensacola Marathon, already at an all-time registration high, will be ordering special commemorative t-shirts for the additional runners and will be ordering additional Pensacola Marathon medals, which will be mailed to the runners upon their delivery. The registration fee will include the race, event t-shirt, medal, and post-race party, which features a taste of Pensacola with food vendors providing samples of their local specialty. Special hotel rates are still available for all runners, including staying on the beautiful white sandy beaches of Pensacola Beach starting at only $130.
