The Reggae Marathon RunninGuy is the official blogger for the annual sporting event for more than eight years. Also known as ThatRunninGuy, Diane Ellis, Sponsorship Director of Reggae Marathon, Half Marathon and 10K, said the person behind ThatRunninGuy is a very committed Jamaican runner.
“He did not start running until in his 20s and since then, has been a dedicated and passionate runner, having participated in many marathons around the world. He is an early riser so he tends to capture the pre-dawn setting at each annual event. This year he will participate in his 9th consecutive Reggae Marathon, Half Marathon and 10K set for December 2 in Negril,” said Diane Ellis, Sponsorship & Marketing Director for Reggae Marathon, Half Marathon and 10K.
From our viewpoint, ThatRunninGuy has brought ‘something special’ to his work with Reggae Marathon, Half Marathon and 10K, she said.
“The unique ‘virtual’ connection with runners from all over the world via instagram, facebook and twitter helps to create a buzz among all the participants who look forward to meeting or reacquainting themselves each year at the event,” Diane continued.
“In this the 17th year of the annual sporting event, long lasting friendships have been made and grown by the mutual love of running and Jamaica,” she noted
