Half Marathon, 10K & 5K Races

Lukas loves Reggae and Running

Lukas Wyniger of Switzerland, AKA ‘Lukee Lava’, is a well known Reggae DJ who performs throughout Europe.  In 2009 at over 220 lbs, he was a 32 year old pack-a-day smoker with an “ate what he got hold of” diet.  Running was the farthest thing from his mind.

Fast forward 4 years:  Lukas completed the Helsinki Marathon with a time of 2:49! That’s Lukas in the photo above at the Finish of the Boston Marathon in 2013.  Running completely changed his life!  As a lover of Jamaica and of course Reggae, he’s set his goal this year to run in Reggae Marathon.  And he’s bring his family and friends along.

I’m a amateur marathon runner from Switzerland with a personal best, Helsinki 2013: 2h 49m 33s. I’ll be travelling to Negril with my wife, brother, two young sons and some friends.  My brother and  I will run the marathon.

Lucas with Sean paulI love Reggae!  I have Switzerland’s biggest Reggae radio show on Swiss National Radio, SRF3. That’s me with Sean Paul in Europe.  I’m particularly excited about Reggae Marathon because I love Reggae Music and there’s music at every mile along the course…’Loud Sound Systems!’  What better way to enjoy two of my loves:  Reggae and Running!

I’m training hard and will be ready to race December 6!  Can’t wait to meet you all in Negril!!

Lukas, we’re looking forward to meeting you end your entourage in Negril for Reggae Marathon this December. Keep us up-to-date on your training progress.

Until next time…
