One of the growing trends in tourism is sports tourism. Triathlons, cycling or running events held in exotic destinations combine a special vacation experience with a race event and are increasingly appealing to runners and their families. Reggae Marathon delivers a special sports and vacation experience in spades: a great beach vacation destination with a world-class racing event including the full marathon, ½ marathon and 10K races. And we get press! Here’s what people have been saying about Reggae Marathon:
