Registration opens for Virtual Reggae Marathon 2020

“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.
