The most convenient way to get downtown to the Miami Marathon and Half Marathon, this Sunday, January 25, 2015, is to take transit to the race.
The regular Metrorail fare is $2.25 per one-way trip. Only EASY Cards or EASY Tickets are accepted at Metrorail fare gates. Runners are encouraged to purchase (or load an existing) EASY Card or EASY Ticket before the race on January 25, to avoid long lines the day of the event.
