The UPS 5K Benefiting United Way of Miami-Dade takes participants through the beautiful city of Coral Gables and will run on our new scenic course where you’ll see sites like Church of the Little Flower and the Biltmore Hotel. The race still starts and ends at the City of Coral Gables Historic City Hall at a festive post-race party across the street from City Hall at the intersection of Le Jeune Road and Miracle Mile.
