Located in Melbourne on Florida’s Space Coast, the Publix Florida Marathon & 1/2 Marathon Weekend makes for a perfect warm winter running destination for runners of all ages and levels. Like a Rock-n-Roll marathon, this event includes more than 20 musical acts along the course of the half and full marathon and half a dozen on the routes of the 5-k and 8-k races.

It is a walker and headphones-friendly event with a seven hour time limit on the Marathon course.  Half Marathoners have 5 hours to complete the event.

A very scenic route awaits and includes four bridge crossings for the full and two for the half-marathon. The course twice takes marathoners to the beach side barrier island and back to the mainland before concluding at the riverfront Front Street Park in downtown Melbourne. The awards ceremony follows with a party featuring yet another live band.

Take the Floridiot Challenge!  Run either or both the 5k and 8k on Saturday and the half or full marathon on Sunday and receive a special medallion produced by The HIghland Mint.
