Support Our Young Runners
Many children who participate in Reggae Marathon's Grand Prix Road Race Series need good running shoes. Instead of throwing out those good used running shoes, bring them to Reggae Marathon in Negril and drop them in a specially marked box at Registration. We will distribute those shoes to the children taking part in the 2011 Road Race Series.
