General Overview

Held on the idyllic island of the capital of The Bahamas, Nassau, which is immersed in history, natural charm, beauty, white-sand beaches, aquamarine waters and hospitable and welcoming residents, Marathon Bahamas has become the preeminent endurance event of the country.

Downtown Nassau

With a dawn start, runners take to the streets of Nassau running into history through downtown and slowly taking in the breathtaking views as they traverse the bridge to world-famous Paradise Island. On the return to Nassau, runners are greeted with the slow-rising winter sun before turning west to open ocean vistas and returning to a dramatic oceanfront finish at Arawak Cay where the celebration begins! 

Marathon-day events include the marathon as well as a half marathon and a four-person relay

which start simultaneously.

The event features runners from 25 countries and 31 states and is supported by a large volunteer   contingent from every walk of Bahamian life.

Race weekend has an event for all fitness levels and is ideal for families, a group of colleagues or a friends' run-and-stay-cation.

The Bahamas Race for the Cure 5K, which precedes the marathon on Saturday, is an opportunity for people of all ages to celebrate survivorship, remember those we have lost to the disease, and make a difference in the fight against breast cancer. It can also be used as a 'warm up' for the marathon.
