Bringing serious athletes through the streets of Downtown Miami and by the breezy roads of South Beach, this race has about as eclectic an atmosphere one can find. The Miami Marathon also offers a half marathon, and the Tropical 5K to keep things open for less avid enthusiasts. Despite taking place in the heart of winter, the event promises to be a sunny and warm affair, as are most down here in South Florida. If a race in the heat isn’t at the top of your list, don’t forget that you can contribute to or run for charity participants of the Miami Marathon and raise money for a variety of causes, some of which include: stomach cancer, down syndrome, and HIV/AIDS.
