Jamaica’s 10th annual Reggae Marathon got another shot in the arm with the Team Lipstick USA confirming their participation in the event which is to be held on December 4.

Team Lipstick is northeast USA’s largest and most successful all-female triathlon team, with chapters in New York City, Washington, D.C., and New Jersey. It will be in Jamaica for a week-long training camp that culminates with the Reggae Marathon, Jamaica’s premier international marathon event.

According to Founder and CEO of Team Lipstick Laura Cozik, participants are excited to get racy in Jamaica at the Reggae Marathon. “We couldn't imagine a more perfect place than Jamaica, with its gorgeous beaches, stunning resorts, laid-back atmosphere, and—most of all—the warm, friendly Jamaican people. Having been to the race last year, I can definitely say it will be the highlight of our trip, with a start line under the stars, tiki torches and reggae bands on the route, and a finish line on Negril Beach,” she said.

Jamaica’s high season begins from mid-December and the event is likely to give a further impetus to the already flourishing tourism industry in Jamaica. John Lynch, Jamaica’s Director of Tourism sums it up: “Jamaica has a long and distinguished history in track and field, athletics, and music. This is a special event because it combines sports and reggae in a tradition that’s been honoured for 10 years now. In previous years the marathon has attracted support and endorsement from such groups as the American Heart/Stroke Association (ASA) and the Heart Association of Jamaica. With this year’s participation of Team Lipstick, Jamaica further establishes itself as a sports, health and wellness destination.”

The marathon was launched in 2001 and today it sees participation from over 18 countries that come here to experience the greatest race in the Caribbean.

The event is scheduled at the onset of the High Season and during this period, there is great demand for private Jamaica rentals comprising private villas, cottages and Jamaica apartments. If you wish to participate or witness the event, you could do well by staying in Silver Sands Jamaica which is within easy distance of Negril. In fact, we would be glad to arrange for transport to Negril and other places of interest during your stay here.
