Reggae Marathon and Half-Marathon: Negril Attractions & Sightseeing, Jamaica
Come and run in Jamaica's paradise. Negril is as lovely as Nature created it, and has embraced an event that is so natural, all it takes is your breath away! Join us on a mostly flat out and back course running along the North Coast of the island for the full or the half marathon.
Reggae Marathon - an experience like no other! The essence of Jamaica is captured in this truly unique event.
It's early morning and the tropical moon barely hangs over the ocean that washes Negril's seven-mile strip of beach - celebrated as one of the worlds finest. The chirping crickets are joined in chorus by chanting Rastafarian drummers who set the stage for the Reggae runners - who are now electrified by the intensity of the beat.
Yeah man! On cue from the starter, torchbearers raise their flaming bamboo torches in a ritual that has become the signature of the start to the Reggae Marathon. As the horn blows, the runners are off and jammin'!
As daylight emerges, Reggae runners enjoy a scenic course that meanders along Negril's coastline passing verdant pastures and foliage. A nature lover's dream. Gentle breezes waft through the air along with pulsating strains of Reggae Music as runners and walkers pass through the sleepy villages that wake to cheer them on.
A two-day warm-up period with live music and entertainment gets runners in the mood for the serious business of the marathon which gets underway early in the morning of the third day. This is Jamaica's premier international marathon event that attracts a mix of long distance runners, sports enthusiasts and first time marathon runners. It is a fun event with a full-time party mood helped along by live reggae music. Both the marathon and half-marathon start at Long Bay Beach Park, on Negril's 11km (7 miles) of white sandy beach.
The Reggae Marathon & Half Marathon is Jamaica's premier International Marathon Event. Marathoners, sports enthusiasts as well as beginners, converge in Negril, Jamaica's capital of casual, for a fun Event characterized by good vibes and lots of Reggae Music.
