C.I. Marathon registration fee increase approaching

Organisers of the Intertrust Cayman Islands Marathon are reminding runners and walkers that the deadline to get the least expensive registration rate in 2017 is fast approaching. Anyone thinking about participating in Cayman’s premier running event on Sunday, 3 December is encouraged to make the commitment for the long run now before prices go up on Thursday, 31 August.

The registration fee for the full marathon is now CI$72, the half-marathon fee is CI$48, and registration for the four-person relay is CI$152. These rates will increase by $8, $4 and $16 respectively, and will continue to increase until the week before the race.

“The new registration fees after 31 August will still be economical but registering now will save people money, which we know many will appreciate these days,” said Race Director Rhonda Kelly of Kelly Holding Ltd.

“Once you have registered, you are more motivated to train because you have committed financially. Plus, it also encourages you to get out there and get ready to race. Some local runners tend to register at the last minute, but we hope that these great early registration fees will be an incentive to register sooner rather than later.”

Kelly also reminded the public about the race’s runner loyalty programme where individual runners who have participated in the Cayman Islands Marathon or Half-Marathon for three consecutive years are eligible to receive the cheapest rate in 2017 no matter when they register.  Those rates – $72 for the full marathon and $48 for the half – can be taken advantage of up until the day before the race.

The programme discounts are currently available when registering online at CaymanIslandsMarathon.com, but eligible participants will need to register at the Kelly Holding office or mail in a registration form with their fee after the rates increase at the end of the month.

The Intertrust Cayman Islands Marathon is also sponsored by Cayman Islands Department of Tourism, Flowers Bottled Water, BOB 94.9FM, Westin Grand Cayman, Gatorade, Subway, Milo, CayLight, Cayman Airways, Bliss Living Yoga, Ministry of Sports, Fast Signs, Harneys, Quaker, KPMG, Cayman National, Smoothie King, Explore Cayman, Coppertone, Netclues, CUC, Massive and Phoenix.
