The event has water stops each mile of the course and will feature at least 20 musical acts along the route with a post-race concert providing beer, pizza and more to runners. The 1/2 Marathon Relay offers two runners the chance to work together on a 6.55 mile tag-team run with each receiving a finishers medal.

The races kick off on Saturday with the Florida Today 5k & 8k and Dunkin Dash Kids Run, with at least six musical acts on the race course and post race party with live music. Going into its seventh year, the Melbourne Music Marathon Weekend is East Central Florida’s premiere distance event and one of the most environmentally sustainable races in the southeast.
