You'll love this race! I had a great time there! I was one of the fortunate ones who PR'd.
I ended up meeting a bunch of GREAT people before the race which we continued to hang out with for the duration of our stay. I was very impressed with the organization of this race, since it was their inaugural race! The course was nothing spectacular, but it was relatively flat. Beware, there was a good stretch of road that subjected you to the elements of the sun. They did have plenty of water/Gatorade stops, one every mile and served in plastic bags--which was convenient. The only thing that the race really lacked was spectators...but that could change in time, for this is something new to them. All in all, I enjoyed myself immensely in Jamaica and have plenty of wonderful memories.
