Publix Florida Marathon & 1/2 Marathon

Melbourne, Florida
Distance: Marathon · Half Marathon · Marathon Relay · 8K · 5K · Kids Race

Located on Florida's Space Coast, just north of Miami, far south of Jacksonville and east of Orlando and Tampa, the State Farm Melbourne Beaches Music Marathon Weekend makes for a perfect warm winter running destination for runners of all ages and levels. The Melbourne Music Marathon typically attracts a slightly more serious runner than the previous month's Disney Marathon, but the course is still designed for fun. The weather is fine and the course is flat as a pancake, making for some spectacular PR's.

One of the best and most scenic courses in Florida taking runners along the Intracoastal Waterway and over two high Spanish bridge crossings. More than 20 bands on the course, embroidered hats, great tech shirts and big spinner medals to finishers--plus beer and food at the finish line.

The Publix Florida Marathon & 1/2 Marathonbegins in downtown Melbourne and traverses along scenic US1 and the Indian River offering great water views and two bridge crossings for half-marathoners with four for the full marathon runners. The event has water stops each mile of the course and will feature at least 20 musical acts along the route with a post-race concert providing beer, pizza and more to runners. The 1/2 Marathon Relay offers two runners the chance to work together on a 6.55 mile tag-team run with each receiving a finishers medal.
