Review

Love this marathon! Ran the full marathon 6 times and the half 4 times. A beautiful view at every turn including Miami Beach, Coconut Grove and Biscayne Bay at around mile 20. Just seeing the sun glisten off the bay gives you enough energy to make it the rest of the way.

Race Tips

Please, watch the weather and expect anything. Past years have been as hot as the 80's and as low as 40's at start. Be prepared!

review of 2016 Miami Marathon.   

4 / 5 Stars

Review

Expo was best-of-class. Mostly nice roads.

I'd say that 90% of runners run the 1/2. It gets very suddenly comparatively lonely.

Race Tips

Try to line up in front corral. I know that's not fair, but it is complete mayhem. Way too many walkers allowed to front. ZERO consideration by people there.

The DJ's along the route have no clue about running or life in general, typical South Florida. 2 miles before end one DJ was on mic telling people "only 5 miles left". Maybe because he was close to the 4KM sign? Confused, someone?
