Half Marathon, 10K & 5K Races

They come, they run

They come, they run … from all over the world!  For a hugh variety of reasons runners from over 30 countries around the world make the pilgramage to Negril on the first Saturday of December for Reggae Marathon.  I’ve been doing it for 6 years now and have started the countdown to December 5, 2015 which will be my 7th in a row!  170 days to go!

I’ve talked to a lot of runners over the years.  All come to run of course…and rave about the course and runner care.  But what keeps us coming back is something tougher to pin down.  The island of Jamaica casts a spell:  People, music, food, smells, hospitality.  Combine all that with the Reggae Marathon event and after a while you just crack that knowing smile whenever anyone asks what makes Reggae Marathon special.  These runners certainly know that once you go, you know!
