The original marathon took place in Greece thousands of years ago, but none of the ancient Greeks could have imagined a paradise quite like the Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort, which is sponsoring a much more tropical marathon. For the fifth year in a row, this Grand Cayman hotel is sponsoring the Intertrust Cayman Islands Marathon, which takes place December 4, 2011. This marathon is laid out in a loop, but participants will be hard pressed to care when surrounded by such beautiful scenery as the Seven Mile Beach, Grand Cayman, and the sparkling Caribbean waters.
An ideal destination to stay for a Grand Cayman vacation, this Marriott Cayman Resort has become a favorite hotel for marathon runners and vacationers alike. The Grand Cayman Hotel has always embraced the outdoors: its beautiful Seven Mile Beach, Grand Cayman, property welcomes hundreds of guests every year to enjoy the warm weather and natural beauty. Supporting the marathon near Seven Mile Beach seems like only a natural choice.
“It is truly an honor to be the sponsor for this year’s Cayman Island’s Marathon,” said General Manager Enrique Tasende. “This is the 8th year for this event, and a great opportunity for the island to position itself as a primary destination in the Caribbean to promote sports, fitness, wellness and health.”
After the marathon, runners can return to this Grand Cayman hotel and unwind. For tired muscles, marathon participants can soothe aches and cramps at the on-site La Mer Spa, which offers a number of massages and spa treatments. Soft, comfortable beds also ensure runners have the best sleep of their lives. And great on-site restaurants like Solana on Seven Mile Beach and Red Parrot will help replenish burned calories and refuel after the marathon.
