The star of the show

The 13.1 course starts out on the famous Ocean Dr. and makes its way towards the Julia Tuttle Cswy past some magnificent residences of Miami Beach.

After crossing the causeway into Miami, runners enter the flourishing Wynwood area where you will be able to see well-known graffiti artwork throughout this art district.  Runners next leave the city of Miami and return to Miami Beach across the MacArthur Cswy where you’ll catch a glimpse of cruise ships at dock. Upon entering South Beach, the course will run on the new South Pointe Park Baywalk along the waters of Biscayne Bay with spectacular views of Fisher Island.

As you approach the finish via Ocean Drive, the course turns onto beach side serpentine where the finish line welcomes you. Finally, enjoy a grand post-race beach party on South Beach in Lummus Park.  You earned it!

On-Course Information

Start Corrals
Half Marathon runners will line up in the start corral based on estimated finish time (faster in front).

Aid Stations
There will be 11 aid stations with water and Gatorade along the course and at the start and finish line. All aid stations on the course will have personnel and portable toilets located nearby. Enjoy the refreshing spray station located at Mile 9!

We see you out there putting in the training to get ready for the Baptist Health 305 Half Marathon & 5k! Gatorade products are created specifically to help tough athletes like you replace the fluids and electrolytes lost when training and racing over prolonged periods. These products are backed by over 50 years of nutrition and hydration research at the Gatorade Sports Science Institute (GSSI). They deliver a 2:1 glucose:fructose blend that helps the body maximize carbohydrate absorption while minimizing GI distress. That means that with each serving, you’ll get the fluids and nutrients you need to dig deeper and work harder. Gatorade Formula will be available on-course at every aid station and you’ll find Energy Gels on-course delivering the fuel to unlock your best, start to finish.

Medical Support
Medical assistance, provided by Miami Beach Fire Rescue and Miami Fire Rescue, will be available along the route as well as in a medical facility provided by Baptist Health South Florida located at the finish line. Mobile medical responders will also be stationed throughout the course.

Participants requiring medical assistance may be transported to one of the nearby hospitals and will be billed by the hospital and ambulance provider. Participants must give on-scene medical personnel the freedom to determine which facility will be utilized.

A special thanks to the great volunteer staff of medical professionals from Baptist Health, including the doctors, nurses and other medical professionals from across the organization.

Portable Toilets
A large number of portable toilets will be available at the start and finish area and along the course near every aid station. Please DO NOT relieve yourself on either private or public property along the course.

SAG Wagon 
The back of the pack crew and SAG wagon will signify the end of the field and the maximum 16 minute per mile pace. They will not start timing until the last person crosses the start line and will be with you throughout the race. If you cannot maintain a 16-minute mile pace, you will be required to board the support buses.

Watch Your Step!
We do our best to provide a smooth route but please be aware of bumps and other roadway safety markers you may encounter on-course, including these rubber lane delineators on Ocean Drive at the Start Line.



The Gear Check facility is located in Lummus Park on the grass between 11th & 12th St.

All baggage must be inside the CLEAR BAG provided at Packet Pickup. Baggage will not be accepted if items are not properly stored inside the bag. Personal bags or backpacks may not be placed directly in the clear bags. Participants must remove all contents from their backpack, place them inside the clear bag then place the backpack in the clear bag. All items must be visible.

Gear must be dropped off prior to entering the Start Line area. Additional clear bags will be available on race morning. Place all items inside the clear bag and affix the Gear Check label from the race bib to the bag. Participants must have a race bib to use Gear Check (and to be on-course in general). Only give items to volunteers working at Gear Check.

Arrive early to check bags, as Gear Check will close 5 minutes before race start. Life Time is not responsible for any lost or stolen items. After the race, items must be picked up from the same location before Gear Check closes at 10:00 AM. Unclaimed items will be donated to charity after one week of race day. All bags are subject to search and seizure by the Miami Beach Police, event security and race officials.

Time Limit

For your safety and the timely reopening of the streets to vehicular traffic, you must reach key locations by specified times or you will be required to take back-of-the-pack (SAG) transportation provided. Half marathon participants MUST complete the course within 3 hour and 30 minutes, or 16 minutes/mile. Should you fall below this pace, you may be asked by a course official to continue on the sidewalk adjacent to our course as streets will be reopened. Partial lane closures will be utilized, so please make sure to stay inside the cones and obey all public safety officials and course marshals.

PLEASE DO NOT START EARLY! Traffic and safety rules prohibit early starts. Early starters will be eliminated from the official results.

Mile markers situated along the course will have a large display clock indicating the elapsed time of the event. These display clocks will show the time from the official start of the race (elapsed time), not an individual’s “chip time”.

Race Rules

Runners going backwards, with animals, skateboards, bicycles, baby joggers and roller skates are all prohibited in the 305 Half Marathon. No wheeled vehicles are allowed other than wheelchairs participating in the race.

Walkers will be allowed in the half marathon as long as a 16 minute/mile pace can be upheld. Participants who cannot finish the half marathon in 3 hours and 30 minutes will be asked to move to the sidewalks if they wish to complete the race. MP3 players are permitted during the race. For the safety of all on the course, we ask that runners keep their music low or consider using just one headphone.


Located near the southern tip of Florida along the state’s Atlantic coastline, Miami Beach typically enjoys mild to moderately warm temperatures in the late winter and early spring months, and usually far drier weather this time of year than in the summer months, when rainfall is usually relatively heavy.

In March, temperatures average between 66°F and 75°F, while rainfall totals average around 2.2 inches, one of Miami’s driest months of the year.


The 305 Half Marathon will have entertainment stations along the course with  bands, performances, cheer squads, community group aid stations and DJs pumping tunes that will keep you movin’ throughout the fun-filled 13.1 mile course.
