The 13th running of our hometown race was memorable. The new ownership does things right, the financial hindrances of the past are gone. This race and its accompanying weekend of events are a stock on the rise. The Bill Bone 5k on Friday night was a fun race. The event was larger than last year, … Continue reading 2017 Palm Beaches Marathon

The Saturday night pre-race dinner was a nice event, getting to … Continue reading Palm Beach Marathon 2012
