Half Marathon, 10K & 5K Races

The Race

The Half Marathon & 10K begin at Long Bay Beach Park, situated midway along Negril’s famed 7-mile white sand beach. The course loops into Negril town center and then heads east to Bloody Bay before returning to finish at Long Bay Beach Park. The 5K race also starts at Long Bay Beach Park, heading in the opposite direction towards Negril’s aerodrome, with the same finishing point. The mostly flat course is an IAAF certified half marathon & 10K course.
