Race through Exuma

June 23, 2016

This October, visitors to our Exuma resort will have the opportunity to participate in making history with the first annual Run for Pompey, a race commemorating the slave who kicked off an uprising that was central to the beginning of resistance and the road to Bahamian independence. The event will take place over several days, beginning Friday October 9th with a banquet, followed by Saturday's educational tour and lecture, and culminating on Monday with races, an award ceremony, food, prizes and live music. Whether you're a seasoned marathoner or a newbie, there are many different race options available, from a 5K "fun run" all the way to a 50k ultra marathon taking you through the entire island. Early registration ends in September so be sure to sign up soon at www.runforpompey.com, and use the promo code POMPEY for a discount. Come join in on a great time for a good cause.
