Bigger Run Barbados
The Cave Shepherd Run Barbados Marathon Weekend is expecting to see an increase in competitors at this year’s event.
This was revealed by event director Zary Evelyn during yesterday’s press launch at the South Beach Hotel.
“We are expecting growth this year to be around 20 to 25 per cent and that is despite the fact that the Caribbean has gotten a bad press with the hurricanes.
“A lot of people out there that were interested in coming to Barbados for the marathon have been calling and emailing and want to know how you guys [Barbados] are recovering so it took a lot of getting the message out there that Barbados is ready for everyone to come in and enjoy the marathon weekend,” Evelyn said.
