Best Running Routes

South Beach Lincoln Road

Run across the Venetian Causeway from I-95 and head east on Lincoln Road (walking mall) all the way to the ocean. Pretty long run from the HWY, but possible. Or just run the 4-5 mile stretch of beach and boardwalk that runs along the ocean in Miami Beach.

South Beach

Run on the beach with the famous “Raven.” http://ravenrun.net or run north along the boardwalk passed the Fontainebleau and other world class hotels.

Key Biscayne

Up and over the biggest bridge in Miami along the ocean into Key Biscayne on the running path. Stellar run!

Miami downtown

Run from the stairs at American Airlines arena then south through downtown down Brickell Street and back.
