Runners, unite! Crisp weather and pretty foliage make fall the best time of year to train for a marathon. This year, get some real R&R (running & relaxation) by signing up for the Reggae Marathon in Negril, Jamaica, on Saturday, December 1, 2012.
Every marathoner deserves generous pampering, which is why The Caves has crafted a Reggae, Running & Relaxation package, an all-inclusive experience complete with a pasta dinner, race transfers, pre- and post-race sugar scrubs, and a congratulatory cocktail party.
More into speed than endurance? The Reggae Marathon also offers a half marathon and 10K. Registration is still open, so click here to sign up!
Here’s your race weekend itinerary:
Fly into Montego Bay, head down Lighthouse Road, and arrive at The Caves. You’ll be greeted with a signature Cliffhanger cocktail to calm the nerves. (One cocktail can’t hurt before the big day, right?) That evening, The Caves will provide roundtrip transfers to the annual “World’s Best Pasta Party” at Couples Swept Away.
Rise early, feel the adrenaline, and get in pre-race mode. Let The Caves worry about the logistics while you get centered for a breathtaking run that winds along the island’s north coast.
26.2 miles later, with endorphins flowing and legs wobbling, The Caves will meet you at the finish line for transfer back to the hotel.That evening, let loose in the Blackwell Rum Bar – set in a candlelit cave – at a celebratory cocktail party.
Experiencing that stiff I-didn’t-even-know-I-had-a-muscle-there feeling? Head to the resort’s spa for a Blue Mountain Coffee Scrub to help ease the tension. Recline in a chaise lounge in the sun, and if you have a little bit of energy left, leap from one of the property’s cliff-edge jumping points (the highest at 30 feet) into the impossibly blue waters, or stay limber with a leisurely snorkeling tour through the limestone grottos.
Reggae? Check! Running? Check! Rest and relaxation? Check, check! Now it’s time to check out… But for those who can’t tear themselves away from The Caves, extra nights can be booked with a special 10% discount.
