The Dec. 6 Palm Beaches Marathon takes runners through Lantana for the first time.
At mile 9 of the 26.2-mile race, which starts and ends in West Palm Beach, runners enter Lantana on North Lakeside Drive, continue south to East Ocean Avenue, and cross the Intracoastal to the beach. There, at mile 11, marathoners turn and head back through Lantana on Federal Highway.
The Old Key Lime House and the Friends of the Nature Preserve will host “wacky water stations,” according to Ilona Balfour, who said they’ll compete race-wide in a contest to be named the wackiest station.
