The 305K course offers runners ample views of the ocean waves crashing against the shore and the art and architecture of the city’s world-famous South Beach. The spectacular sights don’t stop along this 3.1-mile course from the start line along Ocean Drive, down to South Pointe Park and back up to the finish line at Lummus Park in South Beach.
There will be aid stations with water and sports drinks along the course and at the start and finish line. All aid stations on the course will have personnel and portable toilets located nearby.
Medical support during the 305K will be provided by health care professionals. Medical assistance will be available at each water station along the route providing medical assistance as needed. A fully-equipped medical facility will be located near the finish line.
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 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.
Gear should be dropped off prior to entering the start area at the gear check truck. Please make sure to use the clear bags given out at packet pickup, and you muse use your gear check tag located on your bib to identify your bag. There will be additional clear bags on race morning.
Please DO NOT leave valuables in your bag, as we cannot be responsible for the contents of your bag. DO NOT leave your bag around the start or finish areas outside the official bag drop area. Bags left outside and unattended may be confiscated due to Homeland Security requirements.
