I Ran A Race On A Tiny #Caribbean Island And It Was Spectacular #marathon #runchat

That’s not to say that the race is without its issues, because no race is. There is no crowd support whatsoever due to the small population of the island, early start time, and limited running culture on the island, so if you’re looking for high fives, you’re probably not going to get any.

The aid stations are basic but offer Gatorade and water, including bottles that you can grab on the go. The finish line spread is simple, but the reception is warm. All in all? It’s exactly what you would expect from a small local race, except for the absolutely stunning beauty.
