"I've done 20 marathons all over FL, WI, Boston, NY and Chicago as well as Jamaica and while they're all lovely, Marathon Bahamas ranks as one of the most beautiful courses I've ever run! It left me enchanted and destined to return to experience it again in 2013. Not only is it gorgeous with perfect weather but the organization is top-notch in terms of course support, medical staff, hotel accommodations, culture and safety.
I recommend it to all runners as a great run-cation."

"I have mixed feelings about this race, but on the whole I would recommend it. The pros are pretty straight forward:
- Beautiful course, especially after the first 10k.
- Very enthusiastic and supportive kids manning the water/gatorade stations. They were great.
- Nice excuse to get away for MLK weekend.
- Generally fast course, except that this year the headwinds were out of control. I read in the paper that the dude that won the race ran 12min slower than he expected. "

"This was our first trip to the Bahamas and what a wonderful introduction to it we had! The marathon really made it even more special. Everything about it was perfect, from the packet pickup to the party on the beach at the finish line. I loved every minute of it.
The course was beautiful and always varied enough to keep the legs strong. The wind was pleasant, except for a couple miles when it was a bit of a challenge, but every race has its challenges. The weather was perfect, in truth."

"I love what Marathon Bahamas displaces at every marathon since 2010, to which i have been apart of. The 2010 marathon was my first one every, i did that in 7hr, in 2011 my time was 6hr and now 2012 my time is 5hr. I think i'm moving ahead. 2013, mmmm, what would it be. Can't wait to see, but i'll see you'll there again at the finishing line. Keep it up Marathon "
Judeen Gray from Nassau, The Bahamas
"I ran Barbados Marathon last year which was very poorly organized and I was expecting something slightly better here in Bahamas. However, I was very amazed on how well this race was organized. From the expo to the race itself, it was wonderful. Of course the course itself was absolutely breathtaking. Thank you race officials for such a great experience!!"
