Space Coast Marathon & Half Marathon
Running Zone Foundation and Space Coast Runners welcome you to the 44th running of the Space Coast Marathon and Half-Marathon – Florida’s oldest marathon. We invite runners and walkers alike to experience one of the most beautiful USATF certified waterfront courses on the east coast of Florida.
Both races start in the historic and quaint Cocoa Village, and finish with a lap around the Riverfront Park amphitheatre where family and friends can cheer and watch your finish.
We are extremely excited to continue the 5-year journey (2013 -2017) with the Big Bang Series! In 2015 we honor space shuttle Discovery and all those involved. Big Bang Theory is “in short” a theory about the creation of the universe through an expansion. We chose the name “Big Bang Series” for the creation of an amazing expansion to our “universe” a 5-year series for the Space Coast Marathon & Half Marathon. We added the space theme to the race in 2007 and designed this new program to honor the Space Shuttle Program and for the accomplishments and sacrifices of all those involved. We feel a deep sense of pride here along the Space Coast with all of the tremendous accomplishments of the Shuttle Space program. We “launched” the Big Bang Series in honor of these accomplishments. We hope you join us in this mission. See you at the finish line. HALF CAP: 3,600 / Half Start: 6:00am FULL CAP: 3,600/ Full start: 6:30am
