2021 Life Time Miami Marathon Early Bird Registration Now Open
February 12, 2020
MIAMI, Feb. 12, 2020 – On the heels of its first sellout weekend in more than ten years, Life Time has announced confirmed dates and an exclusive window of registration for the 2021 Life Time Miami Marathon presented by cbdMD and popular Tropical 5K. The 2021 Life Time Tropical 5K will be held on Saturday, Jan. 30 while the Life Time Miami Marathon will take place on Sunday, Jan. 31. Registration for the events is now open for early bird pricing through 11:59 p.m. EST on Sunday, Feb. 16. At that time, registration will close and will not re-open until May 1.
Driven by past participant feedback, Life Time has implemented strategic initiatives including a reduction in field size to 20,000 for the full and half marathon and 3,000 for the 5K. The size reduction will better the athlete experience by eliminating overcrowded corrals and enhancing the overall race experience. With these changes, Life Time is excited to continue offering the premier experience runners have come to expect from the healthy lifestyle brand.
“Listening to participants is integral to how we operate and produce events people love,” said Frankie Ruiz, chief running officer at Life Time. “The decision to adjust our field sizes are a direct result of that feedback. We strongly believe these changes will ensure a premium race experience by alleviating crowded corrals and course congestion. We’re excited to evolve the marathon and look forward to seeing everyone come out next year.”
The 2020 Life Time Miami Marathon played host to nearly 60,000 athletes and spectators who flocked to Miami from all 50 states and 83 countries last weekend. The event accounts for more than $18 million in estimated economic impact according to a 2019 study conducted by the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau and the marathon continues to be a favorite among runners elite and new. The USTAF-certified and Boston-qualifying course is a beloved winter escape for many and offers world-class views of Miami via the Venetian Causeway. The growing event also features impressive activations, entertainment and an elevated VIP experience with perks such as valet parking, concierge service, premium swag, pre- and post-race massages, a cocktail reception and more.
