F.A.Q.


Is the April 18 2021 event happening live?

YES, we are on track to having a LIVE race on April 18, 2021

Am I registered?

Please e-mail support@thefloridamarathon.com to confirm your registration. We had also made multiple LAST CALLS for deferred athletes. If you did not respond, your entry is invalid for the April 18 event and will be moved into the Space Coast triathlon on May 16th.

When is packet pickup?

Packet pickup will be on Saturday April 17th at the pavilion right next to the Cocoa Beach Aquatic Center. If you are unable to make it the day before, we do have morning of race pickup which begins at 5am at the same spot.

Can I just get a refund if I am unable to race?
Per our policy, it has been clearly stated when registering that we do not issue refunds for any reason (weather, cancellations etc). We will issue a credit for any one of our races within a year of the cancelled event. We can also defer you to another one of our events.

What is a USAT license?

Every athlete (including each one in a relay team) MUST hold a USAT license in order to compete. If you do not have one, it can be obtained at packet pickup for $15 CASH only.

If you have paid for a one-day license from our cancelled 2020 event, it will get transferred over into the 2021 event.

Tips for First Timers?

We HIGHLY encourage you to attend one of our pre-race briefings held the day before the race. Our race director will do a walk through of the swim course, transition, run course and so much more. It will be held at 1PM and 3PM on Saturday April 17, 2021.

Do I have to wear a mask?

ALL athletes MUST wear masks when not actively racing. This means that when you are lining up for your swim wave, you will have to be masked until it is your turn to swim. Trash cans will be at the edge of the water by swim start for you to dispose of used masks (or tuck them in your suit). Once the race is over, ALL athletes must be masked when walking around transition and race areas. If you do not have one, we can provide them for you.

Can I wear a wetsuit?

USAT rules state that competitors may wear wetsuits if the water temperature is 78 degrees or lower. A USAT judge will be checking the water temperature on race morning and wetsuit eligibility will be announced multiple times in transition prior to race start.

We encourage you to monitor water temperatures through weather reports in the Cocoa Beach area the week leading up to the race.

Is there a time limit?

There is a 3.5 hour strict time limit for the whole course.
