This coming Saturday is the last day for early online registration discounts for anyone planning to participate in the Cayman Islands Marathon, Half-Marathon and 4-person relay. As of Sunday, 2 September, the registration fees will increase and continue to increase until race day on Sunday, 2 December.
After Saturday the registration will still be economical at US$55, US$85 and US$180 for the half-marathon, full marathon and four-person relay respectively, but registering before that will save each runner US$5. Race organizers are encouraging runners to log on to CaymanIslandsMarathon.com and register early to not only take advantage of the lower rates but also to solidify their commitment to the race.
‘Once you’ve registered you are more inclined to actually participate because you’ve committed financially,’ said Sue Greene of Kelly Holding Ltd., organizer and owner of the Cayman Islands Marathon event. ‘It also motivates you to get out there and start training. Some local runners tend to register at the last minute but we hope that these great early registration fees will be an incentive to sign on today!’
A number of overseas runners have already made their commitment to be in Cayman for the race, says Greene, and the Kelly Holding team is working on new elements for the event including a Kids Fun Run and a training programme spearheaded by Fitness Connection.
The next increase in registration fees will happen in November and all fees include funds for the race’s worthy charities, the CI Cadet Corps and the CI Cancer Society.
