- Road Race
A race is much more than a run that goes between a start and finish line. It is the culmination of a grueling training cycle with an event meant to celebrate the achievements of every runner.
Weeks and months are spent training for a race. Ups and downs are felt along the way, as the event organizers are planning a weekend that allows runners, volunteers and supports alike to revel in the accomplishments.
Year-after-year, the Miami Marathon and Half, puts on an international spectacle to celebrate the achievements of more than 22,000 runners. And, this year, they did not disappoint even with the extra wrinkle of moving dates to accommodate the big game that was held in Miami.
The weekend event began with the Expo and packet-pickup at Mana in Wynwood. This marks the third year in a row the Expo was held in this beautiful location and it was better than ever. Packet pick-up was smooth, and vendors had great deals on running merchandise that every runner wants and needs.
Race day went smoothly. The Miami weather gave runners some wind to deal with, however it could have been much worse. The course ran fast, each water station was well stocked, volunteers kept our spirits up and the spectators were raucous.
