“One of America’s Top 10 Bucket List Waterfront Races,” says Runners World Magazine.

Located in Melbourne on Florida’s Space Coast, between Miami and Jacksonville, east of Orlando and Tampa, the Publix Florida Marathon & 1/2 Marathon makes for a perfect warm winter running destination for runners of all ages and levels. It is held a month after the Disney Marathon. Like a Rock-n-Roll marathon, our event includes up to 20 musical acts along the course of the half and full marathon and half a dozen on the routes of the 10K & 5-k.

It is a walker and headphones-friendly event with a seven hour time limit on the Marathon course.  Half Marathoners have 6 hours to complete the event.

A very scenic route awaits and includes four bridge crossings for the full and two for the half-marathon. The course twice takes marathoners to the beach side barrier island and back to the mainland before concluding at the riverfront Front Street Park in downtown Melbourne. The awards ceremony follows with a party featuring yet another live band.

We compost, Recycle, Reuse and are one of the worlds most sustainable running and endurance events. PERIOD.
