This scenic waterfront course takes runners up the causeway and back. Live bands play along the course which includes waters stops at each mile. Event shirts are guaranteed to pre-registered entrants, and all entrants will be net-timed with ChronoTrack timing. The event also includes a family friendly post race party with live music and a 1-mile dog walk. The races kick off on Saturday with the Florida Today 5k & 8k and Ronald McDonald Kids Run. The 8-k is the USATF-Florida Masters state championship race with at least six musical acts on the race course and lots of post-race fun with music and kids jumpy house following the Ronald McDonalds Kids Run. Going into its fifth year, the Melbourne Music Marathon Weekend is East Central Florida’s premiere distance event and one of Florida’s fastest growing races.
