Organizers of the Intertrust Cayman Islands Marathon on Dec. 3 are reminding runners and walkers that the deadline to get the least expensive registration rate is fast approaching.
Participants are encouraged to make the commitment now before prices go up on Aug. 31.
The registration fee for the full marathon is now $72, the half-marathon fee is $48, and registration for the four-person relay is $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 Aug. 31 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 reminds the public about the race’s runner loyalty program where individual runners who have participated in the Cayman Islands Marathon or Half-Marathon for three consecutive years are eligible for 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 program discounts are 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.
