A large number of runners are about to win the lottery.

But this time around, the prize won’t be cash.

The high-stakes sweepstakes is for an entry into the 20th anniversary Life Time Miami Marathon that will be run Sunday, February. 6, 2022.

It’s the race version of a Golden Ticket.

Driven by the demand of thousands of runners who will hit the pavement for the half and full marathon distances, the Life Time Miami Marathon  achieved its earliest sellout ever in early November.

But there was massive continuing demand, so a waitlist was created for additional spaces as they became available at More than 7,500 runners have joined that waitlist. A lottery for available spots will be executed on December 7.

That is expected to let hundreds of new runners enter the race.

“For 19 years, our Miami Marathon team has kept the athlete-point-of-view front and center and our 2022 event is poised to be our best yet,” said Frankie Ruiz, Miami Marathon co-founder and Chief Running Officer at Life Time. “The sellout of this iconic 20th anniversary race has Miami buzzing.”

Participants from near and far, representing all 50 states and nearly70 countries will take on the USTAF-certified, Boston-qualifying, flat course that showcases the best views of Miami’s cityscape and waterways. As one of the most internationally friendly events in the industry, Life Time personalizes the race bib of each runner with their home country’s flag.

The weekend will kick off with the  Life Time Tropical 5K on Saturday, Feb 5.  Registration for that race is open at There also will be a virtual version of all three races of race weekend due to the demand from runners around the world who built an affinity for virtual races through the Covid-19 pandemic.
