About The 2020 Life Time Miami Marathon presented by cbdMD

Founded in 2003, the Life Time Miami Marathon has evolved to become one of the fastest-growing annual marathons that hosts tens of thousands from around the world. Known for its scenic, USTAF-certified, flat, single-loop and Boston-qualifying course, the event attracts first-timers and elite distance runners alike each January. Note: the 2020 events are taking place two weeks after their customary dates to ensure an exceptional athlete experience on the heels of the big game, which will be hosted at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium on Sunday, Feb. 2.

The Miami Marathon and Half Marathon is owned and produced by Life Time, the premier healthy lifestyle brand. It is among more than 30 premier athletic events owned by the company, including the New York City Triathlon, Leadville Race Series, Dirty Kanza and the recently announced Big Sugar, debuting on Oct. 24, 2020 in Bentonville, Ark.
