Race Description

The Publix Melbourne Music Marathon & 1/2 Marathon begins 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 half marathon is the USATF Florida state championship and National Championship Masters Half-Marathon race. The weekend offers a purse of $13,000.00 marked specifically for USATF-member Masters 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.

The races kick off on Saturday with the Florida Today 5k & 8k and Dunkin Dash Kids Run, with at least six musical acts on the race course and post race party with live music. Going into its sixth year, the Melbourne Music Marathon Weekend is East Central Florida’s premiere distance event and one of the most environmentally sustainable races in the southeast.
