2018 Marathon of the Treasure Coast
Get your running shoes on, the 5th Annual Marathon of the Treasure Coast is set for Sunday, March 4th, 2018. The course is nestled throughout the scenic shores of Stuart, Florida, offering breathtaking and tranquil views. Located on the East Coast of Florida, the Marathon is a mere two-hour drive from Orlando, or one hour drive from West Palm Beach, offering travelers into the area a convenient airport in each direction to fly in to.
The Marathon is a family friendly event, suited for walkers and including a children's race. Can't make it to Florida... that's ok. You are welcome to register for the Marathon's virtual race.
Runners have the choice of a full marathon, half marathon or the full marathon relay, which is open to teams of 2 to 4 runners each. Both races will follow out-and-back courses that start and finish in Stuart, Memorial Park, and unfolds along the heart of Stuart.
Runners start in downtown Stuart before running west, turning on to the Boardwalk Run, and continuing east toward Sewall’s Point. After making a loop around Sewall’s Point and traversing the bridge across St. Lucie River, the finish line is just a few miles away, passing several residential streets before crossing the finish line.
The course is designed to show off the scenery and the waterfronts that the area is known for, organizers say, with plentiful views of the water along the St. Lucie River and Sewall’s Point, as well as of local shops and homes both there and in Stuart, to give runners a taste of the charm of southern Florida – and make it a great winter getaway from runners in colder parts of the country.
The half marathon and the full marathon are open to both runners and walkers, and relay teams may either run or walk their legs during the race.
The course time limit for both the half and the full marathon is 7 hours, which means that runners and walkers will need to have completed their races by 1:00 PM.
