KINGSTON, Jamaica – Raul Gomez, host of the popular, MARATON MAN travel show in Spain will be participating in the Kingston City Marathon on Sunday, March 17.
The host, Gomez, travels around the world to compete in marathons and will make Jamaica his next stop. Gomez will be accompanied by a production crew of three.
The show has up to 3.7 million subscribers with a wide range of followers on social media.
Gomez, in an interview with the Kingston City Marathon, says “we will be in Jamaica two weeks before the marathon and will visit with athletes, philanthropists, in an attempt to dig deep into Jamaica’s culture and lifestyle.”
Co-Chair of the KCM, Nicola Madden-Greig, says “We are delighted that Raul has chosen Jamaica and the Kingston City Marathon is particular to be included in this wonderful travel and sports show”. Jamaica is known mainly for having great sprinters and as we focus on the longer distances, we are happy that our event will be able to showcase the other side of Jamaican athleticism, history and culture.
The target for the event is over 5,000 and “so far registration has been encouraging,” says Madden-Greig.
The marathon, the newly added event to the Kingston City Run, will also include a 5K, 10K and a half marathon.
Proceeds from the event will be donated to four main charities.
- Open Arms Development Centre
- Marie Atkins Night Shelter
- Food for the Poor
- Missionaries of the Poor
