Publix Fort Lauderdale A1A Marathon & Half Marathon

Sunday, January 26, 2020 • Fort Lauderdale, FL • Course Map

activeregisterThe beauty of what race organizers call the “Venice of America” is on display for participants in both the full and the half marathon events at the Publix Fort Lauderdale’s A1A Marathon & Half Marathon, named for the north-south highway that stretches through the city along the beaches of the city’s Atlantic Ocean coastline.


The race — which features a full marathon and half marathon on Sunday, and a 5K on Saturday — is run entirely on paved surfaces, on city streets starting at downtown’s Museum of Discovery and Science and finishing at South Beach Park, with gorgeous views of the Atlantic Ocean.

The course’s first mile, which both full and half participants share, takes runners past many of the city’s most popular nightlife spots, and next heads eastward on Las Olas Boulevard toward the waterfront, bordered by canals with views of luxury yachts and homes.

Half marathon runners reach the turnaround point just above East Oakland Park Boulevard, after which they begin their trek back southward toward the park.

In addition to the half and full marathons on Sunday, there’s also an A1A 5K race on Saturday morning. More than 4,000 runners crossed the finish line in all three races combined in 2014, including more than 3,400 finishers in the half marathon alone.

    Is there a host hotel for runners? Is there an expo on Saturday? Is there a time limit for the half marathon?

    Got a prompt email reply tonight but it was not responsive. So let me try again. We approached the A1A Marathon booth at the Space Coast Marathon on Sat. We paid $160 via credit card; we filled out paper registration sheets for both of us. The men never advised us to go online later. We have received no receipt yet. When I filled out the online registration today (as a test), your computer never alerted me to stop because I was already registered. At what point (or where) do I discover our registration status? (I certainly won’t pay twice. ) Thanks.
