Organizers of the 1st ever Ambergris Caye Half Marathon & 10K Fun Run/Walk scheduled for April 6th, 2019 are now accepting runner registrations. This sporting event seeks to garner support from international and local runners, in an effort to raise money for educational scholarship opportunities for the islands’ underprivileged youths and to provide medical and emergency relief to needy families.

The cost is $50bze per runner and deadline for registration is Wednesday April 3rd, 2019. There will be a briefing the night before the race (Friday, April 5th) to confirm your participation and to receive your tote bag with running supplies, including your tag/race number and official t-shirt.

For information and inquiries, email; [email protected] on weekdays between 9:00 and 5pm. We look forward to your running participation to make this the leading, annual sporting event on the island of Ambergris Caye.
