Kingston City Marathon

The Course

Every year, we celebrate the star of the show — the course. The Kingston City Marathon presents mile after mile of scenic tropical views, iconic Kingston attractions and the sounds of reggae that help propel runners to the finish line. There are great sites as you run this city, pass iconic locations such as the Bob Marley Museum or other sights on the course that capture your imagination including vistas of the magnificent Blue Mountains, a UNESCO world heritage site. There is so much to see and experience on this incredible course!
