WHAT: Join us for the biggest 5k in Florida along with 25,000 other enthusiastic people at the Mercedes Benz Corporate Run. This will be my 3rd time participating and it gets better each year! This is a great way to socialize while exercising, get a boost of energy during the work-week, or get inspired to become a serious runner.
WHO: Anyone at any fitness level. Please be willing to jog or speed-walk during part of the time.
HOW: All serious registered runners will go first at the sound of the whistle. Then we (and everyone else---joggers, walkers, children in strollers, elderly people) will go after them at our own pace and enjoy the cool sights along the way in Downtown Miami and Brickell. It takes about 1 hour. Afterwards we can relax and enjoy some refreshments. For most participants, this event is more of a block party and a time to hang out than a competition.
WHERE: The race begins at Bayfront Park in Downtown Miami and goes through Brickell. Plan to arrive early. Please note the Directions, Road Closures and Course Map on the website: https://mercedesbenzcorporaterun.com/miami. To avoid traffic, take the Metrorail and/or Metromover.
WHEN: Our group will meet at 6:30pm SHARP near the starting line at Bayfront Park. I plan to arrive a little early and will post the exact street with a visible landmark. The race begins PROMPTLY at 6:45pm. PLEASE BE ON TIME as we won’t be able to wait for you and it will be impossible to find each other in such a large moving crowd. Allow yourself an extra 45 minutes to drive through traffic, find parking, and walk through the mass of people.
See you at the starting line!
