2021 In-Person Event CANCELLED
Virtual Experience Registration Now Open!

To our valued Life Time Miami Marathon family,

This year has been unlike anything we have ever experienced so let me start off by saying we sincerely hope you and your loved ones are well, and have found ways to stay positive, active and hopeful during this challenging time.

Your patience has been greatly appreciated as we have tried to navigate the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 and the potential return of large-scale athletic events. It is with a heavy heart that we announce the cancellation of the 2021 Life Time Miami Marathon & Half Marathon presented by cbdMD scheduled for January 31, and the Life Time Tropical 5K scheduled for January 30.

Believe me when I say we are devastated. This will be the first time we are unable to host this event since its inception in 2003, however the health and well-being of our running community is of utmost importance. Due to coronavirus-related concerns for our runners, spectators, volunteers, staff, vendors and the numerous partners and essential workers that support us throughout race weekend, we made the difficult decision to cancel Miami’s premiere endurance event.

All registered participants were emailed directly on Monday, October 26 in order to execute one of the following four resolution options by Saturday, November 7:

DEFER your entry to the 2022 Life Time Miami Marathon & Half Marathon presented by cbdMD (Feb. 6) at no additional cost. You will receive:

  • Free entry into any one distance of the 2021 #VirtuallyMiamiFamous Experience with your choice of the 5K, Half Marathon, or Marathon virtual distance.
  • Spinning medal and swag for completing your designated distance.
  • Complimentary access to the free 10-week TuneUp online training program (begins Nov 8)

Note: You will have the opportunity to sign-up for additional virtual distances within registration.

SWITCH your entry to the 2021 #VirtuallyMiamiFamous Experience. All half/full participants who choose this option will receive:

  • Free entry into the Virtual 2021 Life Time Tropical 5K, the Virtual Half Marathon AND the Virtual Full Marathon events during the month of January
  • Multi-layered spinning medal and a swag item for each distance completed.
  • Complimentary access to the free 10-week TuneUp online training program (begins Nov 8)
  • Guaranteed entry into the participant capped 2022 Life Time Miami Marathon & Half Marathon presented by cbdMD on Feb. 6 (registration fee must be paid)

DONATE your registration fee to the Miami-Dade County Public Schools via the Life Time Foundation. Your 100% tax-deductible donation will support Miami-Dade County Public Schools as they continue to safely provide meals to students during this time of crisis.

GET A REFUND for your registration fee, minus processing fees.

*All decisions must be made by November 7, 2020 (11:59 PM ET). Decisions not made before this date will be automatically deferred to the 2022 event. Further details on the virtual event(s) may be found here.

The decision to cancel weighs heavily upon us. It is our pride and joy to host thousands of runners from all over the world each year here in our magical city. But we must each do what is necessary to protect our community and ourselves. Remember that we will get through this together and we can’t wait to see you again at our Miami Famous start line.
