The inaugural GFNY Florida Marathon marks the first event in the new era of GFNY events under the Global Endurance Sports Series

NEW YORK CITY, February 24, 2021 – The Sebring International Raceway in Sebring, Florida will host the inaugural GFNY Marathon Florida on October 24, 2021.

GFNY Marathon Florida Sebring is a centrally located, flat and fast marathon, perfect for runners looking achieve a Personal Best time or qualify for key races like the Boston or NYC Marathon. GFNY Marathon Florida also offers a half marathon distance and 4.2-mile fun run around the Raceway.

Before taking in old Florida charm, runners will experience an exhilarating start under the floodlights as they complete the first 4.2 miles on a big loop of the high-speed Sebring International Raceway.

After leaving the track, runners head towards the city of Sebring on straight, flat roads, where ample water stations and music cheer stations will be located.

For the 13.1mile route, runners will turn back to Sebring International Speedway on reaching Sebring to cross the GFNY Half Marathon finish line.

The IAFF certified 26.2-mile course will continue past the Sebring International Raceway, before coming back to complete a second loop to Sebring before returning to the GFNY Marathon finish line at the Raceway.

“As we transition into new events under the newly-unveiled GFNY- Global Endurance Sport Series, it is exciting to welcome runners to GFNY.” said Lidia Fluhme, GFNY’s co-founder. “It is also a great opportunity for GFNY fans to trade their bike for running shoes and experience GFNY in a new way.”
