The Life Time Miami Marathon & Half Expo is the ONLY place where registrants may pick up their race bib, and can be picked up during the times of the Expo. Please note: there will be NO race-day registration and NO race-day bib pickup.
Remember to bring a photo ID. If you need to have someone else pick up your bib, you must provide them with a copy of your photo ID and bib number.
Please know your bib number in advance so you can head straight to the correct bib pickup counter.
