When one thinks of the city of Kingston, lots of things come to mind. However, what we want you to think about is what will March 2019 bring.
So far, there are a few important events we have confirmed for the month:
- Boys and Girls Champs – March 26 – 30
- Melbourne (Cricket Club) 5K – March 5
- Long walk to Freedom (Buju Banton) – March 16
- And… The Kingston City Marathon (weekend), March 15 – 17
You then ask yourself, how am I going to do all of this in Jamaica for the whole month of March when I don’t have all that time off?
My choice for you is to come to the Kingston City Marathon www.kingstoncityrun.com and you will get the greatest experience ever.
The weekend’s event will have a welcome (Friday) and an after-party. There will an exhibition on lifestyle and wellness (Saturday) and then there are the races – 5K, 10K, ½ marathon, full marathon (Sunday) (IAAF/Aims certified). The races will take you through some of the historical sites across the city which has been declared one of UNESCO’s Creative City. Also, only recently, reggae has been added to the cultural heritage list. Kingston has a lot to offer to every discerning visitor from home and abroad.
The experience will be diverse. It will have the best of the people of Jamaica. The most sumptuous and tasty food; the best music selections you will hear anywhere in the world; great accommodation – even an hour away in Ocho Rios and the race you will choose to run to relax and to add to your bucket list.
The partnerships established for the Kingston City Marathon will serve not just the business side of the city but will focus its attention of building its Corporate Social Responsibility profile with its continuous support of its charities. You will find the options to support at this link http://www.kingstoncityrun.com/v2/charities/
This 7th running of the event, while attempting to attract global participation, will have a special focus on the Caribbean and the Project Team has created an opportunity to highlight the top Caribbean winners in each race category. You may even see a Caribbean performer at the after-party.
So, think about this from my view. You have vacation. You have some extra money left over from Christmas. And all the bills are covered – make it Kingston, Jamaica, March 14 – 18 and you will get to have the experience of a lifetime.
Call up your favorite travel agent and secure airline seats and hotel rooms and sign up for the run www.kingstoncityrun.com – you will thank me.
