If you’re searching for an active vacation destination, look no further than the Exuma Marathon on Grand Exuma! Featuring a flat course, ocean views, and perfect racing temperatures, pack your running shoes along with your swimsuit for an unforgettable weekend in The Bahamas. Whether you’re visiting The Exumas for the first time or considering making these unspoiled islands your home, the Exuma Marathon is the perfect opportunity to experience paradise up close while getting to know our friendly and active community.
Don’t worry if you haven’t been logging those long runs; six race distances are available, ranging from a 2k Kid’s Dash to the 50k Ultra-Marathon. Whichever you choose, stay a few extra days to cross even more experiences off your Exuma bucket list. Kick off the weekend’s festivities with the Pasta Party at Club Peace and Plenty. Don’t miss the chance to rub elbows with this year’s event patron, Bahamian Olympic gold medalist Pauline David-Thompson! Enjoy a conch burger with a view at the Chat’n’Chill, a perfect Caribbean beach bar located on Stocking Island. And your Exuma trip wouldn’t be complete without meeting the famous swimming pigs on Big Major Cay.
The weekend’s events are held annually to celebrate the Bahama’s first national hero, Pompey, whose bravery forever changed Bahamian history. Today, the Race for Pompey is a major fundraiser providing educational opportunities for local students. Join the fun November 9th-11th 2018.
