Spectator Info

Be there along the course to cheer on your friends and family as they run toward the finish line.

Watching a friend or family member running in the Life Time Miami Marathon & Half Marathon is easier than you think! Your runner will follow the course while you take shortcuts to get to your next viewing location before your runner does. However, since the objective here is to both see and be seen, you’ll need to work out a few details beforehand.

  1. Make your very own, unique signs that your runner can easily identify. Cheer sign making stations will be available at the Expo!
  2. Know your marathoner’s expected pace per mile. Refer to the instructions below to track your runner as they cross timing mats on-course (split times) to determine when to be at the Cheer Zone and back at the finish line to catch a glimpse of your marathoner or half marathoner.

Use the results link or sign up for SMS updates to track runner updates as your athlete crosses timing mats on-course. Note: updates are not live and may take a few minutes to update.
