Racing Safely

GFNY Florida Marathon is CONFIRMED. The state of Florida has approved GFNY Florida Marathon to take place on October 24, 2021.

Sebring

Centrally located in Florida, Sebring is home to nearly 100 crystal clear lakes, vast citrus groves, cattle ranches, the Sebring International Raceway, and one of Florida’s oldest state parks. 
 
The Sebring Civic Center, the race week headquarters, sits directly on beautiful Lake Jackson overlooking some of the best sunsets in Florida.

Course

The course starts out with a bang: you get to race a big loop on the high speed Sebring International Raceway. Experience 4.2 miles of exhilarating racing under floodlights to get you warmed up. Once you leave the track, you’re heading towards the city of Sebring on Kenilworth Boulevard. This straight and flat road is perfect to dial in your ideal pace while ample water stations, volunteers and music motivate you. Once you reach Sebring, you'll turn around on the boulevard and head back to Sebring International Raceway - and the GFNY Half Marathon finish line.

Marathon runners continue past the track for a 4-mile out-and-back section on Carrol Shelby Road before you head out for a 2nd loop to Sebring and finish your GFNY Marathon Florida back at the Sebring International Raceway. If you paced yourself well, you might even be able to negative split those last 4.5 miles.

The course is IAAF measured and serves as a qualifier for races such as the Boston Marathon or NYC Marathon. The early morning start and flat course profile make for GFNY Marathon Florida your perfect PR and qualification race.

     

     

Perks included as part of GFNY Marathon Florida Sebring

THE SINGLET: All athletes receive the official GFNY Marathon Florida Sebring singlet, which is mandatory attire at the marathon. The singlet is designed in NYC.

CHIP TIMING: GFNY Marathon Florida Sebring is a timed race. Each athlete has their own timing chip, which starts right after you cross the start line and stops when you cross the finish line. Timing results will be available at gfny.cc/results.

FINISHER MEDAL: Every GFNY Marathon Florida Sebring finisher receives a medal, no matter which distance they complete. All finishers also earn a “Finish” towards their 3x2020-2021 GFNY medal or the 10x medal. Go to fatureta.com/medals for more information on GFNY’s multi-finisher medals.
