Walk or Run with Rush and Team Diabetes in the Cayman Islands!
Can’t join Rush in Scotland? How about the Cayman Islands on December 1st instead?
Rush won’t be hanging up his running shoes after he runs in Edinburgh this May. He has to stay fit for his next adventure with Team Diabetes – the Cayman Islands!
Walk or run with Rush and Team Diabetes in this tropical paradise on December 1, 2013. The event boasts a picturesque, flat route that runs through the financial district of George Town, along the beautiful waterfront and through exclusive neighbourhoods. You can choose between a half marathon (21.1K), marathon (42.2K) or sign up with three friends and do the marathon relay together – that’s only about 10K each to run! For those who prefer to walk, the course is open for 6 hours so the half marathon is very walker friendly.
Once you’re done your event, it’s time to explore! The Cayman Islands lies in the calm, turquoise waters of the western Caribbean and consists of Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac, and Little Cayman. These islands are pieces of paradise that offer an array of activities to keep you busy. Whether you prefer to soak up the sun on a beach, sail, golf, dine out, scuba dive, shop, hit the clubs, hike or a combination of them all, the Cayman Islands offer a great escape from Canada’s winter!
