The marathon is a wonderful opportunity for visitors and locals to experience Kiawah Island and each year sees more and more local athletes and spectators attending the event. The National Anthem was performed by three 8th grade students from Haut Gap Middle School on Johns Island, JaKye Williams, Kelland McGary and Piper Beckstine.
