A message from the Kiawah Island Golf Resort to KICA Members:

Kiawah Island Golf Resort Marathon
Saturday, December 14th, 8am

Again this year, we would like to thank the members of our Kiawah Community for taking part in this event. Working hand in hand with Kiawah CERT, Kiawah Conservancy, KICA, the Town of Kiawah and many others, we truly feel the Kiawah Island Golf Resort Marathon unites the Kiawah community like no other event. In 2018, through this coordinated effort, we were able to donate more than $11,000 to local school groups and charities.

Runners on Roads
The 2019 race courses are the same as 2018, covering the west end of the island (i.e. Greensward, Surf Watch Drive and Eugenia) as well as much of the Ocean Park Area.  Please use caution while driving.
