Dominican Republic Hosting 1st 100K Caribbean Marathon

The North Coast of the Dominican Republic 
Stretching from Cabarete to Samana 
Will Host the First 100K Caribbean Marathon
March 18-25, 2014  

National and international marathoners are expected to participate in the event, sponsored by the Ministry of Tourism.  Participants must present medical certificates in order to participate.

The seven-day marathon will be divided into five stages:

(1) The first (8k) stage will depart from Sea Horse Ranch in Sosua, the ocean front community on the country’s north coast
(2) The second (17.5k) will leave from Puerto Plata
(3) (18k) from the Viva Wyndham Tangerine Hotel in Cabarete, the windsurf capital of the Caribbean
(4) Longest (44.5k) will kick off from the Sublime Residence Hotel in Las Terrenas, one of the north coast’s most beautiful beaches
(5) Last 12k stretch will end in Moron Beach, in the north coast province of SamanĂ¡, where the awards ceremony will take place followed by a big celebration.

The final marathon scores will be calculated by adding the time recorded in each of the five stages.

Part of the marathon's registration fees will be donated to the St. Jude Children's Foundation, the US-based institution that provides health care facilities to children with cancer, and the Miles for Education Foundation.
