The Countdown Is On!

HFM Maritime Marathon

2020 Race Update

HFM Maritime Marathon Registrants:

We have made the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 event due to issues resulting from the COVID-19 coronavirus.  In discussing our options with our medical provider, Holy Family Memorial, as well as with local officials, we felt we could not ensure a safe environment for all those participating and assisting in the marathon event.  We would likely have been short-staffed with both medical personnel and course volunteers.  In addition, government-imposed social distancing requirements may remain in place to some extent for the foreseeable future.  While we were hopeful we could avoid adding our race to the list of other event cancelations, current circumstances dictated otherwise.

We are offering the following three options for you to consider:

  1. Deferral of your entry to next year (June 13, 2021);
  2. Donation of your entry fee to charity (our local food pantries); or
  3. Refund of your entry fee (less processing fees).

You will receive a survey in the next few days to indicate your choice.  Please return your survey by April 30, 2020.  Let us know if you have any questions.
