About Kiawah Island Marathon

On your marks, get set, and go… to our Annual Marathon on Kiawah Island, where 26.2 miles (or 13.1 miles) has never looked so beautiful. Enjoy the ultimate marathon experience and stay at Kiawah Island Golf Resort. Your body, mind and soles of your feet will thank you!

Along the way, you’ll enjoy spectacular views of maritime forests, marshes, and grand homes, as you run throughout the Island community. The only thing more wonderful than the scenery is the moment when you cross the finish line, after completing your full or half marathon!The majority of the course lies within a private community and is not accessible to the general public.

The Kiawah Island Marathon and Half Marathon event is officially sanctioned by the USA Track & Field Organization. Each course, the Marathon course (USATF#SC13101DW) and the Half Marathon course, (USATF#13102DW) is officially USATF certified. Both the half and the full marathon races are qualifiers for the Boston Marathon as well. Official marathon results will be mailed shortly following the event to the Boston Athletic Association.
