Half Marathon, 10K & 5K Races

What to bring to Reggae Marathon?

There are many things you can bring to Negril for Reggae Marathon.  I’ve over packed the past couple of years so for this year I have a new list of things to bring.  Check with me at the Pasta Party Friday to see if I succeeded in packing light:

  1. Bring the shoes you plan to run the Reggae Marathon in of course.  But remember to bring your slightly used running shoes with you as well.  I plan to bring 3 pairs with me this year and drop them off at the special box near the Race Registration area.  It's for a great cause:  your shoes will be cleaned up and given to kids who don't have any.  They'll run in them in the various races in 2012 an

    d they'll really appreciate your donation.

  2. Sunscreen.  The beach in Negril is absolutely fantastic but the sun will not be your friend unless you apply sunscreen.
  3. Bathing suit.  Actually a couple would be best.
  4. Appetite.  It starts with the Pasta Party Friday nights.  After that you must try Ackee & Salfish, Jerk Chicken, Fried fish and bammie…I’m salivating just thinking about the deliciousness.
  5. Camera.  While the sunsets in Negril from any point on the beach are spectacular, I also love the sunrise.  The gentle light caressing the white sand is equally spectacular.

Oh, and I almost forgot, toothbrush.  That should be enough for 5 glorious days in Negril for Reggae Marathon 2011.

Until next time…
