It takes over 2,500 volunteers to “run” the Miami Marathon, Half Marathon and all its associated events. Volunteers are needed to help with the packet pickup at the expo, fill in as course spotters, distribute water at the aid stations, hand out finisher medals and assist in the many other areas that make up the race weekend.
Community Fun Zone Challenge
The Community Fun Zone Challenge is designed to encourage spectator and community participation in the Miami Marathon and Half Marathon. There are five Fun Zones along the 26.2 mile course, each run by a different group or organization. The goal for the Fun Zones is to form a foundation to build an event that involves, engages and gives back to the community.
Omni Station Cheering Zone
The Omni Station Cheering Zone is located at mile 10.5 and will be open from 6:40 a.m. to 8:55 a.m.to cheer on both marathon and half marathon runners alike. At the cheering zone you will be able to customize signs for your favorite runner, grab noise makers to “turbo boost” runners to the finish line, use pace bands to estimate the time your runner will run by the Cheering Zone and enjoy live entertainment to keep you dancing in the streets and cheering for joy while you wait for your runner.
Location: NE 15th St. and Biscayne Blvd.
From downtown take the Metromover’s Omni loop to Omni Station. Exit the train and you are there (approximately a 5 minute ride).
Remember to bring:
- Comfortable walking shoes
- Bright, colorful clothing (preferably orange)
- Camera for that special moment
- Reliable watch to keep track of the race
