Spirited supporters and curb crews are encouraged to make signs, banners and dress in PINK to cheer on the runners as they complete their journey to Finish Breast Cancer. 26.2 with Donna maracas, Mayo Clinic “Go” signs and other cheering supplies may be found at the Health & Fitness Expo presented by Eisai as well as nearby hydration stations on race day. Please be respectful of private and public property and dispose of your cheering materials appropriately.
Ashley Furniture Spectator Shuttles
Ashley Furniture Spectator Shuttles will be available from THE PLAYERS Parking Lot at the start to three key points along the race route on race day. The shuttles will run from 8 a.m.- 3 p.m. If you are staying or live near the race route, it is strongly recommended that you walk to your chosen race viewing location. Much of the race course is within walking distance of the oceanfront hotels.
Spectator Shuttle Points:
- Atlantic Blvd and 3rd Street (Beaches Town Center) – near miles 9 and 17 of the Marathon Course.
- 3rd Street/A1A and 2nd Avenue North (Wells Fargo Parking Lot) – near miles 6 and 20 of the Marathon Course, and mile 6 of the Half Marathon Course.
- Mayo Clinic, The Celgene Finish Line.
- Map out where you’ll be ahead of time by knowing your runner’s pace time.
- Know what each other will be wearing or carry a sign or balloon. Sometimes it’s easier for runners to spot spectators than the other way around.
- Pick a side. Communicate where you will be, and watch from the same side of the road. This will help runners see and find you.
- Plan for traffic. Allow extra time to get from one viewing spot to another. Get there early and don’t leave if you don’t see someone right away. Your runner may be having a really good day or a tough one.
- Cheer on other marathoners!
- Runners are routed to the Publix Runners’ Village and then to the Family Reunite Area on Mayo Clinic’s campus.
- Set a time and place in the Family Reunite Area to meet in case you miss each other at the finish line.
- Relax with friends and family at the Post-Race Celebration and rock the afternoon with live entertainment.
