Miami, Florida – On Sunday morning, more than 15,000 runners from across the globe hit the pavement in South Florida for the 2022 Miami Marathon.

Sunday marked the 20th anniversary of the Miami Marathon.

According to Organizers, they started with around 4,000 runners that year. The event has been taking place since 2003.

Miami Mayor Francis Suarez joined them as well.

According to the first responders which took part in Sunday’s run, they have lost many of their colleagues to suicide and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a silent killer.

The main message they wanted to get out is that you are never alone.

The marathon began in front of FTX Arena in Downtown Miami, went over the MacArthur Causeway to Ocean Drive, through the art district, and back around through Coconut Grove.
