Local Events: The Reggae Marathon & Half-Marathon (Negril)
December. 6th, 2008
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.
Visitors to the island and locals get out of bed to share in the excitement of the event. Reggae Marathon brings together the music and sports lifestyle that has made Jamaica famous. Come check dis! Irie man!
