A Marathon Bahamas program that allows middle school students to run their first marathon is back for a fourth year in a row. The program focuses on fostering healthy lifestyles for Bahamian youth.
The Aliv sponsored, Orange Nation, will once again welcome junior participants for Marathon Bahamas’ 10th anniversary in January. A platinum sponsor of the event, Aliv’s sponsorship allows students to register for free. Aliv is also donating two mobile phones to the male and female student winners.
The award-winning Marathon Bahamas, which is organised and sponsored by Sunshine Insurance (Agents & Brokers) Ltd., will be held January 20, 2019.
‘Students Run Marathon Bahamas’ is a voluntary program. In addition to teaching students the importance of creating and fulfilling goals, this free program seeks to promote and create awareness of healthy lifestyles, with a key focus on physical education.
The program is designed so that the students train and complete 25 miles before the actual marathon. Then, on the day of the event, the students will run the final 1.2 miles on the course.
