Come January 28, all eyes will be on the main event - the Miami Marathon & Half Marathon. Come out and explore all the wonderful things that make Miami famous. The Miami Marathon & Half Marathon takes you through the streets of Miami starting in front of the Miami Heat arena, to scenic Miami Beach, through the Wynwood art district and back to mainland Miami for a grand finish in the lovely downtown bay area.

Every year, we pay tribute to the star of the show — the course. Runners count on the course to pull them through each mile, and every year this route doesn’t let them down. Mile after mile, the beautiful views help propel runners to the finish line. Be on the lookout for sights that you might recognize from a hit TV show or movie - many of those hot spots are actually part of this incredible course!

Friends, family and curious spectators will fill the roadways with inspiring sights and sounds to cheer on the many that choose to RUN MIAMI! Register today to ensure your #MiamiFamous moment as we kick off 2018 with this spectacular event. It's #NotMiamiWithoutYou!

Mike Dill's thoughts:

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.
