How it All Started
The Florida Keys is a fantastic location for triathletes and outdoor-lovers alike, 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 certainly a beautiful thing... MaraTri (short for Marathon Triathlon) was founded by two Marathon locals with a passion for family-fun events and endurance sports. Our first race was simply an intro to triathlon for the local community on the sports of triathlon, but it was a huge success! Our event continues to grow, each year being bigger and better than the last Every participant came and left with huge smiles every race. And we're right there with you cheering you on to be the best you can be! 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!
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 fill out our volunteer form to be added to our list (there is a mandatory meeting before the race). 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. It's a beautiful location with fresh local seafood restaurants, amazing coral reefs and fishing just off shore, and low-key atmosphere that is a perfect cool down after a fun race at the beach.
