Join us for the 20th annual running of the Ocala Marathon, Half Marathon and 5K run through the renowned horse country of Marion County! This event will begin behind the Paddock Mall, on Hwy 200 next to the Sears Automotive Center parking lot. The Ocala Marathon has secured its place as one of the country’s most scenic marathons. Drawing from over 40+ states and seven countries last year says something good is happening in Ocala. The marathon is a combination of southern hospitality and a stunning course that you cannot find anywhere else in Florida. Athletes will come from around the world to test themselves and each other on this Boston Qualifier, challenging 26.2 mile course.


The race weekend will kick-off on Saturday with Early Packet Pickup held at the race location at Paddock Mall, in Ocala, FL. Sunday brings in the Ocala 5K, Full Marathon, Half Marathon and Relay Team races, music, and awards . There is a distance for every level runner, no hard rules, attitudes, or committees. Great Tech-shirts for Full and Half distances, well stocked Aid Stations, easy to follow course signage, and all Full and Half Marathoners finishers receive a custom die-cast Finisher's Medal. No Florida Marathon or Half Mararthon is quite like Ocala. Every year runners tell how unique the Ocala route is. Come and join us and run through the beauty of Marion County. Spectators are welcomed with bleacher seating at the finish line.
