TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - More than 1,000 people will be lacing up their shoes first thing on Sunday morning for the 45th annual Tallahassee marathon.
On Saturday, runners were picking their race shirt and bid numbers at the marathon expo.
Organizers say there are more participants than last year, expecting around 1,200 to finish.
This year, the end of the race will finish at college town instead of Kleman plaza, so the last few miles will be flatter as opposed to uphill.
"We have some hills, so we do our best to make a course that's both interesting and exciting, and also a mix of terrain. So not all hills obviously, so you get a few little rises in there to keep the legs fresh, but also a fast race so everyone can get a food finish time," said Sheryl Rosen the chair of the Tallahassee Marathon committee.
Officials say if you couldn't pick up your gear Saturday, you can still collect it at 6 p.m. on Sunday morning at the Leon County courthouse.
Runners will hit the pavement at 7:30 p.m. sharp.
