Run Barbados

Run Barbados is taking you East

It’s time to lace up those running shoes because Run Barbados is back!

Run Barbados is the largest marathon in the Caribbean and is held in December.

Coasting the East

This year we are leaving the south and taking you to the scenic east coast of Barbados.

This new unique route will take participants on a journey through the most unspoiled and picturesque coast of the island paradise, Barbados.

Imagine running under the luscious casuarina trees to the sounds of the transatlantic waves as you look upon the historic ‘Sleeping Giant’.

Well, this is what participants will experience as they run against the backdrop of the island’s most historic landmarks of this tropical island.
