Many of the greats, from Rob De Castella, to John Treacy, to Jill Hunter and Carey May, have run there, and now, it is your turn!

Take a look at the press release below and consider going down in December. The Barbados team are great people. Many of my friends have gone, and I am quite jealous! Look at Run Barbados as they celebrate their 35th year of running!
