Marathon VIP Race Experience

The 2023 hospitality experience is set and excitement builds as we get ready for the season’s first National Series race of the year. Our VIP experience includes viewing from under the tents on the water’s edge. All this located just at the foot of 7-Mile Bridge. Also accessible will be viewing from the Grand 7-Mile Bridge, high atop the race course.

There will be two action packed days of qualifying, testing and racing. The World’s biggest boats are coming to Marathon.
