Held on the idyllic island of the capital of The Bahamas, Nassau, which is immersed in history, natural charm, beauty, white-sand beaches, aquamarine waters and hospitable and welcoming residents, Marathon Bahamas has become the pre-eminent endurance event of the country.

The event features runners from 19 countries and 31 states and is supported by a large volunteer contingent from every walk of Bahamian life.

Christine Guenther's thoughts:

Decided to get out of the cold PNW and to the Bahamas for a few days and use it as a reason to run some races. I did the Koman Race for the Cure associated with Marathon Weekend as a shake out run in prep for the half on Sunday.

Packet Pick Up: was at a local insurance company who also sponsored the race on Wednesday-Friday. Good luck trying to find it if you’re not a local. I picked up my bib and shirt race morning and ran with the swag if that says anything

Race Start: Montagu Beach, which is 2.5 miles in the other direction of downtown (think past Paradise Island). I may have tried to use it as extra miles if it weren’t dark and I were familiar with the island, but $18 and a cab ride later...

The race itself: true 5K, but too many people congested at the front who were walkers and didn’t pay attention to the walkers at the back. You spent the first mile and change on Bay Street before turning and making your way to Shirley Street. You then went onto Mackey Street and Paradise Island Bridge. Be prepared for some hills over the bridge,it was a bit rough. After getting on Paradise Island, you headed out Harbor Lane and Bayview before heading back and to the finish

Post race: water, fruit available and plenty of vendors to visit with. If you had time, go visit Atlantis, stay for the Survivors gathering and awards, etc.
