2020 Air Force Marathon canceled, being held virtually instead

Local News

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The 2020 Air Force Marathon in-person events scheduled for Sept. 17 to Sept. 19 have been canceled due to COVID-19.

“We simply cannot execute the marathon in a manner where the safety and security of our runners, volunteers, staff, partners, and spectators is satisfactorily achieved,” explained Brandon Hough, Air Force Marathon director. “However, our team has worked hard to offer numerous options to registered participants to be as accommodating as possible.”

For those participants who are currently registered, the Air Force Marathon team has developed three options to choose from.

Participants will be contacted via email with the necessary steps to take.

The options include participating virtually, gifting the registration to an Airman for 2021 or deferring to a future year.

Participants who have registered virtually will not need to take any action.  There is still time to sign up to participate in the virtual events for those who haven’t.
