Reggae Marathon has partnered with the Tottori Marathon in Japan for a few years now. On March 11, Jamaica and Reggae Marathon were well represented in Japan at the 2018 Tottori Marathon. Winthrope Wellington, from Travellers Beach Resort in Negril took on a hilly course on a chilly, windy day. Definitely not ‘Negril type’ weather conditions! In those challenging conditions, Winthrope persevered and ran a personal best of 3:19:39.
March 11 was also Winthrope’s birthday…he turned 34. “My dream came true coming to Japan to run” he noted right after finishing. What a great way to celebrate a birthday! Here are some photos of Winthrope before, during and after his run in Tottori:
Congratulations! Happy Birthday! Well done!
Until next time…
