Despite producing world-class sprinters, Negril, Jamaica, is easygoing. The town’s seven-mile beach is home to one of the most beautiful stretches of shore in the world. One of the best times to visit the island is early December when the temperatures are reasonably temperate and heavy rains are rare. It’s also when the Caribbean island plays host to the Reggae Marathon—and where these breezy images were shot.
The Reggae Marathon, Half Marathon and 10K follow a mostly flat, coastal route in the beach resort town of Negril. With about 1,500 participants from 34 countries, this race starts in the wee hours of the morning to avoid the warmest temps, and finishers can walk right into the cooling sea.
