The Reggae Marathon Run… Respect!

Respect! That is the answer to a frequently asked question from out-of-Jamaica runners about how to handle the temperature at the Reggae Marathon. For most runners from USA and England, training at home for warmer Negril temperature in December is a challenge.

Some tips:

1. Plan to run a little slower.

2. Hydrate. Take advantage of the bag water and Gatorade at every mile aid station.

3. Wear a hat. Keep your head and the back of your neck covered.

4. Wear sunscreen.

5. Respect the temperature. If you can get in to Negril before the race, do a couple of low intensity runs.

The best thing you can do is to have fun. You are in Negril! Here is a look at what you are in for at the Reggae Marathon this December 4:

Until next time…
