Southern Caribbean Challenge

After the success of the first 2 editions of Southern Caribbean Challenge in 2016 & 2017, we will be back again in 2018. World Record holders from over 20 countries started in Puerto Rico and completed the series in Sint Maarten. All events were professionally managed by local authorities on each Island. The entire series was approved by Marathon Globetrotters & Marathon Country Club and all finishers received accreditation from both clubs. The events took place in Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands, Barbados, St. Lucia, St. Kitts and Netherlands Antilles.

We are now proud to present the 2018 edition of the “Southern Caribbean Challenge”. We will take adventurers and sports enthusiasts on a 6 country journey filled with unique running challenges and cultural immersion. Our athletes have the option to partake in one or more running events over a fun-filled one week cruise vacation. The events will again take place in Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands, Barbados, St. Lucia, St. Kitts , Netherlands Antilles and one aboard the cruise ship. The Southern Caribbean Challenge is designed to accommodate every kind of runner and walker. Participants will get a chance to explore the islands, meet like-minded adventure-athletes, and soak in the sights and sounds of each destination. Not only that, the comfort of being on a luxury cruise ship will allow participants to relax and enjoy the evenings with family and friends. Runners & walkers can choose any distance they like ranging from 5K, 10K, half marathon to full marathon.
