“Reggae Runnerz is a labor of love…a passion.  Jamaica has many hidden treasures and to run in Reggae Marathon where the sun meets the sea along the beautiful Northern Coast of Negril…well, that is one of those treasures.  I created this Runcation for my fellow runners so they don’t have to spend time to figure out where to go or how to get there.  I just take care of everything so they don’t have to.”

“Reggae Runnerz primarily patronizes and utilizes the local service providers and businesses in order to keep the money in the local community.  The majority of the larger resorts are not Jamaican owned, and even though they create jobs, the small businesses suffer.  Supporting these local businesses helps the people and their local economy.”

“THIS RUNCATION IS AN EXPERIENCE LIKE NO OTHER!!!  What makes our Runcation unique is that the entire Runcation can be paid on a monthly payment play, making it more financially affordable for everyone.  It’s a great way to celebrate the end of the running year and it is amazing seeing all of the smiling faces and everyone having a great time…and especially hearing….”I can’t wait until next year!”
