Due to the ensuing pandemic forcing city and state facility closures, along with stay-at-home orders, the 14th annual Hibiscus Half Marathon has been cancelled. Registered participants were emailed a form link to choose how to manage their 2020 entry. We look forward to seeing everyone later this year at either the Mango Days 5K or Coconut Chase 8K (fingers crossed!), or on May 30, 2021 for our 14th do-over Hibiscus Half Marathon, 15K and 5 Miler!
