Congratulations Greg Anderson, a Reggae Marathon 1st

It's nice to be first. Last week Greg Anderson of Jamaica was the first person to use the local online and payment facility to register for Reggae Marathon 2012.  In the photo above that's Greg on the left receiving his prize T shirt from Reggae Marathon Race Director Alfred 'Frano' Francis.  Nice going Greg.

“The introduction of paid on-line registration is in keeping with our goal to constantly improve and ensure that Reggae Marathon remains competitive” noted Frano.  “This year, for the first time, local participants will be able to register and pay on-line by visiting the Reggae Marathon Website” he continued.   It's been a while coming and now that online registration and payment is available

in Jamaica, take advantage of the entry fee discount by registering before July 31, 2012.

And Reggae Marathon continues to get kudos.  Reggae Marathon has been listed by the British Telegraph newspaper among the “World’s Best City Marathons” for the 4th time in 12 years.  In the Telegraph’s travel section, Reggae Marathon runs alongside races such as Berlin, New York, Paris, Boston, London and Athens as being among the top ten places in the world to run a marathon.  Personally I think Reggae Marathon is the best! Pristine beaches, the blasting reggae music at each mile aid station to keep our spirits high and 5:15 a.m. start are things I look forward to each December in Negril.

And as Race Director Frano noted, “With a very limited budget but loyal sponsors and community support, Reggae Marathon has managed to maintain an enviable programme for runner care”.  He added, “We have also introduced cutting edge technologies such as championchip® timing to help runners track their progress as well as made it possible for the event to be seen all over the world. We are committed to pulling out all the stops to remain one of the world’s best!”

My registration will be in shortly.  See you in Negril December 1 for Reggae Marathon 2012.

Until next time…
