    This race is very popular with Canadians (and Americans from northern states) looking for somewhere warm and sunny to run in January. Some years it might almost be too warm (especially for the marathoners) because the temp doesn’t really drop overnight in Bermuda so you’re starting out around 20degC even early in the morning. I strongly recommend you carry water even though there are many water stations. You’ll dehydrate quickly if the sun is out.
    Beautiful ocean views through much of the second half. A few rolling hills give a bit of a challenge, but not too much. Very friendly local crowds who come out to cheer you along and will often greet you by name because the bibs have your first name printed quite large!
    As a half marathoner I really appreciate races like this where we get to run the whole course rather than some consolation prize version. It’s the marathoners who get the booby prize here because they have to run two laps, and it gets really hot by the second time around.
    One request to the Race Director: to make the distance official there’s a last minute 100 metre deke up a side street. I understand the need for it, but it happens just as the finish line comes into view. Talk about soul-destroying. Please put it at the start of the race, not minutes before the end!
    Great t-shirts, especially if you do all three races in the Bermuda Triangle weekend challenge (1 mile on Fri, 10km on Sat, Half or Full on Sunday).
