WHO ARE REGGAE RUNNERZ

Reggae Runnerz™ are runners from various running groups across the US who have come together to “RUN WHERE THE SUN MEETS THE SEA” at Reggae Marathon in Negril Jamaica.

Our Runcation is a vacation, in Negril Jamaica, in December, away from the cold, where Runnerz & Cheerleaderz catch up with friends from around the world once a year, and run in the Reggae Marathon. This Runcation has become an annual event where Runnerz reconnect and celebrate the end of the running season.

This is the 8th year for Reggae Runnerz and registration has grown from 12 to 550 Runnerz and Cheerleaderz just by word of mouth throughout the running community…. and most return year after year.

As a combined group, Reggae Runnerz supports Green Island School in Jamaica, with each registrant making a $20 donation. Over the years, Reggae Runnerz has contributed over $48,000 to assists students with the cost of their Exit Exam Fees as well as funding the school’s Track & Field Team’s participation in Penn Relays in Philadelphia. Green Island students have been making great strides, not only excelling academically, agriculturally and in athletics. Reggae Runnerz also sponsors athletes from the track and field team to participate in the Reggae Marathon, allowing them to experience the thrill of the Marathon and compete against other high schools from around the area.

WE RUN, WE SUPPORT, WE RELAX, AND WE HAVE FUN!!!!
