Runners won’t have any reason to get lost

Runners in Sunday’s Cayman Islands Marathon will be able to see the mile markers along the route a lot better this year, thanks to some civic minded art students at the St Ignatius High School.

Bernadette Devlin, Head of Art at St Ignatius High School and 26 of her students have volunteered their time and talent to paint the signs that mark the miles for the runners, adding their own personal, creative touch. The paint was donated by Cayman Coating.

‘The more people we can involve in the race the better it will become,’ explained Race Director Rhonda Kelly.

‘Involving the students in this way has not only made them aware of the event but it has enhanced the race for our runners by making the course more appealing.’

Registration for the Cayman Islands Marathon, Half-Marathon and Four-Person Relay is still open at

Participants can also do walk-in registration at the Kelly Holding office or the day before the race at the Packet Pick-up at the Grand Cayman Marriott from 10am – 4pm.
