5 Island Marathons We Would Actually Run

Island Marathon and Half-Marathons

  • Put these island marathons and half-marathons on your running bucket list (what, you don't have one of those?) and combine your next race with an island vacation. Maybe we're biased, but there's no better way to celebrate after running a marathon than heading straight to the nearest beach chair ... and not running.
