TOP LIVE EVENTS
The Miami marathon is one of the first major marathons in the United States each year, capitalising on the clement weather conditions in Florida at this time of year, which are generally warm and pleasant enough to encourage crowds of spectators while not being too hot and uncomfortable for the athletes. Just to stay on the safe side, the race is subject to a very early morning start.
The race is a relatively recent addition to the marathon calendar, having been run for the first time only in 2003, but it continues to grow in popularity with the addition of a half marathon, and also a 5k run which takes place on the day before the main marathon events.
The marathon and half marathon both get underway at 6am from the American Airlines Arena on Biscayne Boulevard. The finish line is at Bayfront Park, where there is also a post race party for athletes and their supporters.
The course itself is relatively flat and is run on a single loop,
