Sure, you could run just about anywhere in the world! But wouldn’t you prefer to run on a safe, beautiful Caribbean island, surrounded by tropical flora and fauna, charming homes flawlessly landscaped and magnificent views of the sea? Well, come run with us in the Intertrust Cayman Islands Marathon!
The Intertrust Cayman Islands Marathon takes place on the first Sunday in December every year. The 2019 event will take place on Sunday, 8th December. The event consists of a full marathon, half marathon, 4-person relay and a Kids Fun Run.
Our reputation is that of a intimate, warm, friendly, well organised event, and we hope you'll come and experience it for yourself.
It’s easy! The Cayman Islands are just 480 miles south and an hour plane ride from Miami, Florida. Delta, Continental, American, US Airways, Air Jamaica, Air Canada, Northwest, British Airways and Cayman Airways all provide service to and from Grand Cayman. Gateways include Houston, Miami, Tampa, Atlanta, Charlotte, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Kingston, Jamaica, Chicago, Newark, Toronto, Detroit, Minneapolis, New York and London.
The race route is IAAF-sanctioned and is flat and fast, ensuring ideal running conditions. If that isn’t enough, there will be music along the route to motivate runners and add some ‘flava’ to the mix.
The course will take you through the financial district of George Town, along the beautiful waterfront and through some of the more exclusive neighborhoods on the island. Many runners use this route daily and can attest to the safety and quality of the course.
The Cayman Islands is a warm weather destination year-round but we selected one of the cooler days of the year for you to come and run with us. Expect the start line temperature to be in the low 70s meandering into the low 80s by the end of the race.
Don’t come alone! Make sure you bring your family and friends along to take advantage of everything the Cayman Islands has to offer. Spectacular natural beauty, a wealth of activities and points of interest, and all the modern conveniences to make your stay as comfortable as possible can be found on Grand Cayman, the largest and most developed of the three Cayman Islands. For a vacation within a vacation, visit the beautiful, serene Sister Islands of Cayman Brac and Little Cayman.
