Running Zone Foundation and Space Coast Runners welcome you to the 47th running of the Space Coast Marathon and Half-Marathon – Florida’s oldest marathon. We invite runners and walkers alike to experience one of the most beautiful USATF certified waterfront courses on the east coast.

Both races start in the historic and quaint Cocoa Village, and a beautiful finish where family and friends can cheer and watch your finish!n. As our race is held within the shadow of the Kennedy Space Center, the entire event revolves around a space theme sure to delight and energize our participants.

SPACE! As part of the celebration of the Space Coast, here are some of the amenities planned this year:
Custom “Space” Medal and a “Space” Certificate to recognize and commemorate your accomplishment. Start your race to the roar of a Space Shuttle countdown and liftoff on the Jumbotron. The Pre-Race Expo will be held at the Radisson Resort at The Port. For more details, see the Expo page and Participant Perks page.“Space” Props along course and at finish line area “Space” Themed Water/Aid Stations all along course Volunteers in NASA-like uniforms and hats

We are extremely excited to start a new Series! The 4-year journey (2018 -2021) with "The Next Generation" Big Bang Series! In 2018 we honor Project Mercury and all those involved. We added the space theme to the race in 2007 and designed this new program to honor the Space Program and for the accomplishments and sacrifices of all those involved. We feel a deep sense of pride here along the Space Coast with all of the tremendous accomplishments of the Shuttle Space program. We “launched” the Big Bang Series' in honor of these accomplishments. We hope you join us in this mission. See you at the finish line. Please check out all of the details about the Big Bang Series!

Participate in the 3 year Moonwalker Challenge or the 4 year Astronaut Challenge and receive a total of 6 medals!

This is one of the most unique running and walking events in the country! As our race is held within the shadow of the Kennedy Space Center, the entire event revolves around a space theme sure to delight and energize our participants.
