As officials begin counting down to Miami Marathon weekend, organizers said Friday that registration is still open for both the marathon and half marathon.
The races will begin together at 6:15 a.m. Jan. 24 (6 a.m. for wheelchair participants) on Biscayne Boulevard in front of AmericanAirlines Arena and traverse through Miami, Miami Beach and Coconut Grove — though this year the race will use both directions of the MacArthur Causeway to accommodate the construction project on the Venetian Causeway.
The health & fitness expo, presented by the Miami Herald and El Nuevo Herald, this year will be held at Mana Event Center in Wynwood and will be open from noon to 7 p.m. Jan. 22 and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Jan. 23.
The race will close if a combined registration of 25,000 is met.
Registration through Thursday is $140 for the marathon and $115 for the half marathon, then rises to $150 for the marathon and $125 for the half marathon.
The half marathon entry feel will also be $150 if registration is still available at the expo.
