The Tallahassee Marathon began in 1975 with just two participants. From there, it has grown to a first-class event showcasing Florida’s capital city like no other race. The Tallahassee Marathon is an all-volunteer event organized by the Gulf Winds Track Club, a local non-profit dedicated to advancing the sport of running, whether for competition, physical fitness, or pleasure.
More about how we chose our 2024 logo and shirt design:
2024 is Tallahassee’s bicentennial, and to help celebrate, the Marathon used the Tallahassee prime meridian marker located in Cascades Park—one of the landmarks on the Marathon and Half Marathon course—as the race artwork. Designer Annemarie Chin worked with GWTC to combine the historical marker with a color palette that captures the beauty of our city’s sunrises and sunsets. We’re excited to spotlight this cool piece of Tallahassee’s history.
