How it All Started
The Florida Keys is a fantastic location for triathletes, as the water is the warmest in the U.S. year-round. Our Florida Keys Overseas Heritage Trail, that extends the length of the Keys (over 100 miles), is a cyclist's paradise. And running across islands under palm trees is a beautiful thing... MaraTri (short for Marathon Triathlon) was founded by two Marathon locals with a passion for fun events and endurance sports. The first race was simply a glorified training exercise for the local community on the sport(s) of triathlon, but it was a huge success. The event continues to grow, each race being bigger and better than the last, and every participant from every race, came and left with huge smiles. We are dedicated to making MaraTri one of the best run races anywhere. Come race through paradise with us! See you at the starting line!
MaraTri is dedicated to supporting local youth athletics. All race proceeds will benefit local school athletic programs, and students directly through scholarships. Please show your support by registering to race, or help volunteer!
We believe that a race is only as strong as its volunteers. We're looking for energetic, dedicated volunteers to help keep our course safe and fun for all our racers. Please Contact Us immediately if you are interested so we can put you down on our list of volunteers. Community service hours can be given for your time volunteering. Let's make this race awesome together!
Amenities & Attractions
Marathon is located in the heart of the Florida Keys.
