Marathon Bahamas has been named one of the best races in the world. The marathon, which is in its seventh year, took the number two spot in what Runner’s World U.K. calls the “50 best races in the world”.

In the “ultimate globetrotter’s guide”, the magazine reveals the best events on the planet outside of the United Kingdom. Marathon Bahamas beat out the Paris Marathon, the Moscow Marathon, Niagara Falls Marathon and Melbourne Half Marathon, among many others taking place across the globe.

“This is, as you might imagine, a pretty laid-back experience. Starting at 6 a.m., you’ll get in some decent mileage before the heat gets too oppressive, and as you make your way along the fast, flat course, you’ll enjoy miles of ocean views and gleaming white sands,” notes the article. Sunshine Insurance Race Weekend (SIRW) Public Relations Chairperson Rogan Smith said the article is further proof that the marathon is having an impact internationally.

“Runner’s World U.K. is a big deal, it’s really a Bible for many runners, so to be included is indeed an honor. We had no idea they were profiling us, so this was definitely a surprise, especially seeing that we’re number two and on the cover. Our entire team is so very excited. This honor lets us know that we are on the right track. The fact that we were able to best some of the top marathons around the globe speaks volumes to what we’re doing,” said Smith. “We’re grateful to our organizing committee members, volunteers, board members, sponsors and, of course, all of the incredible participants who come together to make this event amazing. It’s a great inducement to make our 2016 event even better, and I can’t wait.”

To register for Marathon Bahamas, the public is asked to visit the website www.marathonbahamas.com. The next event will be held January 17, 2016.
