Along with your running gear and beach wear, the next most important thing to bring to Negril is Sunscreen. With miles and miles of soft white sand and warm Caribbean water gently lapping the shores, ‘catching some rays’ is one of the major activities before and after Reggae Marathon. Worshiping the sun safely is only common sense. Bring lots of Sunscreen. Splurge for the waterproof kind and go with the highest SPF you can get. You’ll thank me later.
Sunscreen is also beneficial beyond the Beach. If you’re running the Half Marathon or Full Marathon, slather on sunscreen before you start out Saturday morning. Yes I know with the 5:15 am pre-dawn start you won’t need it that early buy once the sun comes you’ll appreciate waterproof sunscreen protection.
So pack sunscreen! See you next week in Negril.
