Event Description

Life Time Miami Marathon and Half Marathon presented by cbdMD
February 9, 2020

Register for the experience of a LIFETIME! Come out and explore all the wonderful things that make Miami famous. The Life Time Miami Marathon & Half Marathon takes you through the streets of Miami starting in the downtown area, to the scenic beaches, through the art district and back around to our lovely bay area. You won’t want to miss one of South Florida’s premier events and Miami’s only marathon!


The course is a USTAF-certified, flat, single-loop and Boston-qualifying course*.

There are several bridges along the course with a very slight incline. The bridges are being held in the closed-to-vessel position for the duration of the race.

Digital time clocks will be positioned throughout the course.

Course markers, directional arrows and other signage will be positioned throughout the course.

Several digital clocks at the finish line will display unofficial times.

The full and half marathon will feature entertainment along the course for both spectators and runners.

If you signed up for the full marathon and you decide to run the half marathon, you will receive a half marathon finisher’s medal.

Please line up in the Start Line area according to your corral listed on your race bib.

Family reunion area

After finishing, reunite with friends and family under the signpost with the first letter in your last name. Just make sure you let everyone know which letter to meet you at! If your runner is taking an extra-long time, please visit the Information Booth at the post-race area (located in the center walkway of Bayfront Park, adjacent to the finish shoot) where we will have athlete look-up set up. Course and medical personnel will track runners and record data to ensure updates for families on your runner’s condition and/or whereabouts.

Doctors, nurses and other medical professionals from Baptist Health, which includes Baptist Hospital, South Miami Hospital, Doctors Hospital, Homestead Hospital, West Kendall Baptist Hospital and Mariners Hospital, as well as our Baptist Medical Plazas will be available at the START and FINISH lines as well as the numerous aid stations throughout the course.
