Space Coast Marathon Reviews

Review

Beautiful course. Great party at the end. Great medals and beach towels. Amazing space theme.


Race Tips

First part of marathon is hilly - but Florida hilly - so essentially flat.


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

This is not a huge race so just give yourself time to park and enjoy pre-race festivities.

Pros: Beautiful, relatively flat course, excellent support, huge medal.

Negatives: Very quiet (few spectators). Full Marathon starts AFTER Half, which is dumb. The later start subjects you to hotter conditions. In 2016, the Sun baked the 2nd half of the marathon, causing many to cramp. Marathon should start much earlier to avoid the FL heat. (Half Marathon was ideal).


Race Tips

It may be late November, but be prepared for FL high temps & humidity


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

Use the main parking lot at the mall, where there are plenty of buses to transport you.

Awesome course, very well run event.


Race Tips

Be wary of the second half hills.


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

Arrive early. Parking was a challenge for marathoners.

Review

Flat and shady. Scenic with views of historic plantation homes on one side and the Indian River on the other (think: dolphins and pelicans). Loved the jumbo-tron replay of a shuttle launch to coincide with the marathon start...a total adrenaline rush! Well-supported by NASA employee volunteers in astronaut attire, Great pre-race dinner keynote speakers like Joan Benoit Samuelson, etc.


Race Tips

Usually held the Sunday after Thanksgiving. Balmy weather with gentle coastal breezes usually, but can be a bit hot. Spectator friendly.


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

Stay in Cocoa Beach and treat yourself to an oceanfront room! You'll love the "zen"!

Review

i absolutely love both the marathon and half marathon!! My loves - beautiful race course, great organization, wonderful volunteers, terrific post race party, great finisher's medal and tech shirts...you even receive a beach towel at the finish.


Race Tips

The full and half are both scenic, flat and fast courses. Just be careful of local traffic towards the end of the race. Enjoy the on-course bacon station and mimosas. :-)


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

Stay at a Cocoa Beach hotel if you are coming from out of town. The shuttle bus system is okay, but there are enough close by parking lots that would can drive to the start/finish...just get there early.

Review

Truly one of the best courses I have run and THE BEST MEDAL I have seen.


Race Tips

It's pretty flat and great crowd support. Usually cool at the start and warms up so take it easy as to not burn out once it warms up. Although it is shady most of the course the 2 miles are in the direct sun.


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

Stay at a host hotel and take the shuttles. Very organized.

Review

Beautiful course that winds along the banks of the Indian River; lovely old homes, new McMansions and old cracker houses share the space. Great volunteers and a wonderful post race party in the park. Plus, where else would you get a beach towel instead of a mylar blanket?


Race Tips

Register early and prepare to wake up early the day of the race!!!


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

Can't park there unless you come very early so riding the bus from one of the hotels is best. You can drive to any hotel on the bus list and park there if you are staying with friends or you are local.

Great course and the organization is one of the best ones.


Race Tips

The course is close to the NASA and you could appreciate the iconic NASA buildings.


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

Better to arrive on Friday.

Review

Awesome course relatively flat, limited participants so there was little to no crowding. It's essentially two out and backs so you get to cross paths with all of the other participants. Great crowd support and post race.


Race Tips

Arrive early parking can be tricky. Great park at near the finish so bring the kids.

Review

Well Organized, Great Bling....


Race Tips

Pretty flat out and back through nice neighborhoods where some residents will come out to cheer and provide drinks and fruits. Even an occasional, Bloody Mary and a pancake or two!!


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

Parking is critical, if you use one of the host hotels they provide a shuttle bus.

Review

Gently rolling hills on the first half prepare your legs for the pancake flat back half. If you enjoy running on a super fast course while watching a gorgeous sunrise and dolphins play in the surf all 26.2 miles, then this is the marathon for you. The best bling ever, as well! The weather cannot be beat. Just do it!!!


Race Tips

My advice is to run a conservative first half so you can appreciate the flat back half. There are space-themed aid stations at every mile, along with cola on the last miles for that extra kick. Amazing. I've run this course the last four years and always sub-4:00'd it. Signing up for number 5 as soon as it opens!!!


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

Book your hotel as soon as you are registered. Pick the Hilton or the Marriott. They offer amazing marathon rates and have late check-outs. Reservations for pre-race dinner location is recommended, too.
