puerto rico half marathon

ABOUT Puerto Rico TropiKal Half Marathon


The 2nd edition of the Puerto Rico Tropikal Half Marathon will be held on the beautiful and exotic Caribbean island of Puerto Rico. It is the fodder of many a Caribbean daydream for good reason: it can satisfy both the lethargic beach bum or the budding big-wave surfer – all in a long weekend. Its coral reefs host a riot of tropical fish and the sands shimmer like crushed pearls. This event has a limited of 2,000 registration slots. 


This well organized, spectator friendly race is the perfect vacation spot to get out from the cold weather, so bring the entire family!


Remember, Puerto Rico is a U.S. Territory, so, you NO Passport will be needed when traveling from the U.S. mainland.
