Registration is now open for local and international participants in this year’s Virtual Reggae Marathon, Half Marathon and 10K
Participants are invited to register via www.reggaemarathon.com and choose their virtual event. Registration remains open until November 30 and runners/walkers can complete their choice of event between November 14 to December 6.
“The virtual event is a first for Reggae Marathon, Half Marathon and 10K now in its 20th year. We decided to go virtual so as not to disappoint the thousands of local and international participants who were looking forward to arriving in Negril for the event this year,” said race director Alfred Francis.
Under the new arrangement, each participant anywhere in the world will be able to run their own individual race between November 14 and December 6 and submit their times. Each runner or walker will receive a digital finisher certificate and runner’s bib, while post-race, each will get a medal, signature Reggae Marathon T-shirt and branded tote bag.
Francis also disclosed that going forward the Virtual Reggae Marathon will be held along with the physical race. “We are excited about this new feature and the possibilities in store for our charity partner, the Heart Foundation of Jamaica,” he noted.
Organisers say that since its inception in 2001, the Reggae Marathon has had 24,890 participants, with 13,169, or 53 per cent, being entries from over 40 countries.
