MIAMI, Nov. 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The 20th anniversary of the world-renowned Life Time Miami Marathon is set for Sunday, Feb. 6, 2022. Driven by the demand of thousands of runners who will hit the pavement for the half and full marathon distances, the event has achieved its earliest sellout ever.
In response to ongoing demand, a waitlist has been created for additional spaces if they become available at www.themiamimarathon.com
"For 19 years, our Miami Marathon team has kept the athlete-point-of-view front and center and our 2022 event is poised to be our best yet," said Frankie Ruiz, Miami Marathon co-founder and Chief Running Officer at Life Time. "The sellout of this iconic 20th anniversary has Miami buzzing. I encourage those who wish to take part to join our waitlist for this once in a lifetime event. We expect to announce any spots that become available on December 7."
Participants from near and far, representing all 50 states and nearly 70 countries will take on the USTAF-certified, Boston-qualifying, flat course that showcases the best views of Miami's cityscape and waterways. As one of the most internationally friendly events in the industry, Life Time personalizes the race bib of each runner with their home country's flag.
