PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (WMBB)– Nearly 1,100 runners came to Bay County over the weekend for the 5th annual Panama City Beach Marathon.
The full marathon, a half marathon, a 5K and a kid’s fun run took over Pier Park and Front Beach Road on Saturday.
The marathon was held on a Boston Marathon Qualifier course.
“A team comes out here drives the whole course and maps it out and they pass it with a certification,” said President and CEO of the Chamber of Commerce, Kristopher McLane.
A portion of the proceeds will go to Haney Technical Center to provide more educational opportunities for students.
