50K Marathon

For many, a visit to the Cayman Islands means a chance to push back from the rigors and demands of everyday life and relax. With its legendary tropical climate, placid, azure-blue waters and stunning beaches, it’s certainly no wonder.

However, not all people think alike. A few brave souls look at this paradise of sun and sand and think, wow, what a great place to put myself through the most grueling physical test of my life. If you are one of these special types, then read on.

Time to Go Off-the-Beaten Track
The 9th annual Off The Beaten Track ultra-marathon is being held on Sunday, Feb. 25, beginning at 5 a.m. Consequently, if warm, tropical breezes and intense racing speak to you, now is the time to act fast and make your reservations to get to the Cayman Islands for this one-of-a-kind event.

This innovative race is an excellent challenge for both first-time and veteran racers, as well as those who have entered this very event in the past. That is because the race course changes substantially from year to year, winding over sandy beaches, back roads and tropical bush. What’s more, the exact race course is kept secret until one week before the event, after which it is key for entrants to study it ahead of time to be aware of its impending challenges.

This event is styled after Morrocco’s Marathon des Sables, a 156-mile run over six days across that country’s hot sands, and allows entrants to compete individually or as part of a six-member team.

More than just a race, Off The Beaten Track also benefits the individual charity each of its six corporate sponsors choose to represent, as well as Facing Africa, an organization that sends surgeons and medical supplies to Sub-Saharan Africa to help treat facial deformities in children there.
