Mission Accomplished: Ian ‘Lion’ Gordon completes 8-day half-marathon run around Belize

After running around the country and completing approximately 110 miles in eight days, island marathoner Ian ‘Lion’ Gordon finished the last leg of his ‘Run Around the Country’ tour in San Pedro Town on Monday, May 3rd. The challenge was to run 13.1 miles every day across each municipality/district, starting from the northern district of Corozal to the southern district of Toledo. Gordon, who is 43-year-old, choose this challenge to celebrate his fifth year as a marathoner.

Gordon’s motto, ‘Age Nuh Matta,’ reminds people that being in their 40s does not mean you are heading on a downhill path. Age does not matter! With little rest but more encouraged because he was back at home, Gordon finished his ‘Run Around the Country’ in San Pedro on Monday, May 3rd. At 8AM, local athletes joined Lion on his last leg of the tour. From Central Park, the Run headed north of San Pedro past Matachica Resort and then back to downtown, where it ended at the same starting point. Gordon told The San Pedro Sun that he feels on top of the world. He said the challenge was a project he always wanted to do to motivate young Belizean athletes that everything is possible despite how big a task may be. The island athlete emphasized that age does not matter, but the willingness to do something. “Age nuh matta,” he said in Creole. “If a person says he/she can’t, then they can’t. But if you say you can do it, then you can and will do it. Tell yourself I can get it done and just do it.”
