Run, Bike, and Explore Off-Road at the Miami Trail Festival

Tackle the trails for a day of running, biking, and competitive races at the 2nd annual Miami Trail Festival. Miami is giving you a full day of racing on some of the most unique terrain in South Florida. Connect with fellow trail lovers along Virginia Key’s beautiful mile-long beach, scenic wetlands, boardwalk, historical landmarks, hiking and bike trails, and picnic areas. The festival will be held at the Historic Virginia Key Beach Park on September 21.

Run on sand, wood bridges, and limestone as you traverse Virginia Key in a 3-mile, 5-mile, or 10-mile (two laps) trail foot race. Awards will be given to the top three male and female per category and top three in each age group (14 and under, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60+). After the marathon, feel the thrill of the Miami trails on a full suspension mountain or hardtail bike. Take a ride to the tallest point in Miami while traversing climbs, switchbacks, and fast downhills. Compete in the Expert (20 miles), Sport (15 miles), Novice (10 miles), or Junior race (ages 12-17, 5 miles) for a chance to place in the top three male and female per category and top three in each age group (18-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50+). Multiple race participants are encouraged.
