Reggae Marathon in Jamaica
The international race had 1,500 participants from 34 countries.
Long before the sun came up on Dec. 6, more than 1,500 runners took off to run 26.2 miles along the Negril Coast of Jamaica. The 14th annual Reggae Marathon had runners from 34 countries participating, with the race starting at 5:15 a.m. in an attempt to avoid Jamaica’s heat and humidity.
Competitor was there for it all, from the torches lighting the route in total darkness early on, to the beachfront finish with runners cooling off in the nearby sea.
