Cap off a great year at Reggae Marathon

It’s been a great year so far to celebrate being Jamaican:

For a little island in the Caribbean we sure know how to to get attention on the world stage. The number of ‘Jamaicans’ continues to grow each year…some natural, some by association!

And it’s not over yet:  Reggae Marathon on December 1 is the perfect way to cap off a fabulous 2012!

If you haven’t done so yet, register for Reggae Marathon 2012 December 1 in Negril! If you’re a runner, are looking for a warm-weather race weekend combined with a beach vacation, Reggae Marathon checks all the boxes:

  • Warm weather. Mid-20’s each day with sunshine most days
  • Beach. Miles and miles of white sand beach gently lapping the powder white sand
  • 3 running events to choose from: Full Marathon, 1/2 Marathon and 10K
  • Music every mile…smiling faces every step
Still looking for a hotel in Negril?  Check this link for the best list of all the hotels in Negril participating in Reggae Marathon:  Reggae Marathon Race Hotels.  I like this list because it shows the distance from your hotel to the race start…very useful in gauging your time to make it to the 5:15 am start.
