review of 2011 Miami Marathon.   

5 / 5 Stars

Review

I ran this race on an unusually cool day which certainly helped. If you get lucky though it's a fast course and perfect for a PR.

Race Tips

Expect some heat. Miami's probably going to be warmer than most places at the end of January. The course is essentially flat but don't get caught up with the half-marathoners kicking to the finish just before you turn off at 12.8 miles. Get into a groove and enjoy the solitude in the second half.

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

If you stay at the Intercontinental you're right by the finish line. Otherwise try to stay at one of the hotels on Brickell Ave downtown and you'll just have a short walk to the start.



Finish Time Equivalent

If you ran the Miami Marathon in 4:39:00, what would your time in the Boston Marathon be?
