When you come to Negril, be sure to spend some time relaxing and enjoying Seven Mile Beach. Some may go for a run on the beach early in the morning before the sun rises, others may choose to go later in the day and then finish with a jump in the ocean to cool off. When running on the beach, be sure to watch out for the ropes that are anchoring the boats that are waiting to go out to sea.
When it comes time for lunch, there is no shortage of places that you either grab a snack or sit down and enjoy a meal along with a Red Stripe. When lounging in the sun, take advantage of the fresh fruit you can get, from the pineapple, coconut, and sugarcane. The fresh fruit is second to none. And if you are lucky, you’ll encounter Norman the Patty Guy. You can’t make a trip to Jamaica without getting a traditional Jamaican Patty. (I also like some cocoa bread too!)
Most importantly, whether it’s before the race or after the race, be sure hydrate and drink a lot of water.
