Except for a few slight elevations to give you a challenge, the course is basically flat. The runners doing the Half Marathon will run 6 km. along the northeastern coastline and then turn back at Barnacle Point and run 15 km to the finish line at beautiful Fort James Beach on the Caribbean Sea, where you can run right into the ocean! How is that, for a post-race cool down? The 10K and 5K runners will have a clear path to Fort James Beach. (see the map).
RACE START TIME
The Half Marathon begins at 5:00 a.m.

Water/Aid stations will be placed every mile of the race and you will have a choice of water or Gatorade at each station. We will have spotters along the race course wearing marked T-shirts to provide First Aid in the event of anyone needing help. Medical personnel will also be present along the route to ensure that all runners are provided with quality first aid care.
All persons who complete the race within the six hours cut-off time will receive a finishers medal.
The race will not be responsible for items left at the start line unless they are given to us at the Drop Bag Area. Please do not bring your wallets. These bags will be available at the Finish Line. Bring your swimsuits because at the finish line is a beautiful beach waiting.
The course will be open for six (6) hours to accommodate the marathoners and those who would like to walk it and receive our finisher’s medal.
There are lots of places at the finish line for parking. We will have buses to take you to the start line. The bus will leave the start line parking area at 4:30 am for the Half Marathon, and 5:00 am for the 10K and the 5K.
For those who parked at the start line area, the bus will take you back beginning at 8 am.
The race is a chip-timed event.
