Marathon Bahamas, Half & Relay
Sun 17 January 2016
Balmy ocean breezes, swaying palm trees, and miles of white sandy beaches caressed by crystalline waters – could there be a better backdrop for a marathon? Held in the historic island capital, Nassau, Marathon Bahamas is the ideal winter running event, attracting runners from all around the world to what has become the country's signature endurance event.
The flat, fast course features the best focal points of the Bahamas with an oceanfront start and finish, stunning cityscapes, historic charm, and miles of unobstructed views of aquamarine water. Kicking off at Junkaboo Beach, marathoners weave through quaint downtown Nassau, lined with historic buildings, progress on through the glitz and glam of Paradise Island, and then hug the northern Shores of Cable Beach before crossing the finish line at Arawak Cay. Ensuring racers are properly fueled, the well-supported course will be lined with music and plentifully stocked aid stations at every mile.
The post-race beach party is loaded with entertainment and revelry especially to celebrate your victory.
