This is one run that has its own special vibe. That’s because Kingston has an atmosphere like no other city in the world. Stand still for a moment and you’ll feel it right through your running shoes. But don’t start dancing yet, because you’ve got that fantastic run through the historic district of Jamaica’s capital city. Choose from full, half, 10K and 5K. For added motivation, visualize some spicy jerk and an ice-cold beverage waiting at the finish.
Punta Cana Marathon
April 7-8, 2019
This runner’s delight features a half-marathon course almost entirely within the fabulous Punta Cana Resort, along the dreamy sand beaches of Tortuga Bay on the eastern tip of the Dominican Republic. The course is fast and flat, and the island spirit will have runners absolutely soaring. But you will need to stay on land, at least until the finish line. There’s a 10K, a half and a full that’s also a Boston Marathon qualifier.
