Whitefish Marathon Canceled

We regret to share with you that the Whitefish Marathon, Half Marathon & 5K will not take place in 2020.  After discussions with our event partners, and on the recommendations from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention on how to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus, cancelling the event was the right thing to do to ensure the safety of our participants, staff, volunteers, medical professionals, security personnel and spectators.

We are heartbroken for having to cancel the event as the marathon and half marathon were on a record-setting registration pace.  We know that many of you have been training for months to get to race day.  We understand this outcome is disappointing for all.

To ease the disappointment, we are providing participants three options to choose from:

  • 1.       Defer your registration to 2021 with the date being Saturday, May 22.  No additional charges or fees will be applied.
  • 2.       A full refund minus $20 with 100% of the $20 given to our Scholarship Program.  The Whitefish Marathon is a non-profit event benefiting the The Whitefish Wave’s Scholarship Program. The Scholarship Program provides access to The Wave Fitness and Aquatic Center to local residents unable to afford the full cost of membership and are granted a reduced rate membership based on their financial situation.    The Whitefish Marathon is one of the top fundraising events for the Scholarship Program each year.
  • 3.       A full refund minus $5 to cover the credit card processing fees

Please note that refunds take five – seven business days to appear on your credit card.  You will need your confirmation number (sent to you via email when you registered) to complete the process.  If you do not have your confirmation number, you can find it here:  https://secure.getmeregistered.com/services/resend-confirmation.php

Thank you in advance for understanding how difficult of a decision this was for us to make.  We thank you for your interest in our event and hope you will run with us in 2021!
