The Half Marathon (13.1 Miles)

The half marathon commences at Charlestown and continues to Vance Amory Interational Airport and back to Charlestown.

The Half Marathon is an undulating course that takes in St. Thomas Hill, the rise from Nelson Spring to Cades Bay, and finally the short, but steep Hurricane Hill just after passing the Oualie Beach Hotel, before making your turnaround right next to the Vance Amory International Airport.

Nevis Marathon (26.2 Miles)

Begins in Charlestown and goes around the entire island and return to Charlestown, the starting point.

The Full Marathon course circles the entire island. It provides a great challenge with rolling hills but it is stunningly beautiful.  It begins in Charlestown with the course being as flat as it will be.  After passing the airport at about six miles into the race the rolling hills begin until about mile fifteen then it becomes downhill and flat for about 4 miles until the course doubles back unto itself in Charlestown.  At that point the course is the same as it was at the start for the remainder of the race with the last seven miles being an out and back.  This is an epic and enjoyable course.  The other plus is that the scenic beauty is consistent. This will be the most memorable marathon you've ever completed!
