Half Marathon, 10K & 5K Races

1 Day to Reggae Marathon: Pasta Party tonight!

It seems like just yesterday that we were all in Negril.  The past year sure flew by quickly.

I’ve been looking forward to the Reggae Marathon Pasta Party…all year!   I’m not a ‘Foodie’ but the food stations set up at the Couples Swept Away Sporting Complex are fantastic!  Variety, quality and quantity…just don’t over ‘Carbo load’.

The Reggae Marathon Pasta Party starts at 5 pm this evening and really gets rocking by 7 pm.  It shuts down by 9 pm though so that runners can get some sleep before the 5:15 am start at Long Bay Beach Park Saturday morning.

But that’s tomorrow…time to enjoy tonight!  Check out the menu below.
