Drink Stations/Hydration

Who says you can’t run and drink? Try hydration the Reggae Marathon way! We have the most unique method of ensuring your fluid intake gets to its proper destination.

Our plastic pouch packaging provides liquid (water & Hi-Lyte) you can run with. There’s no spilling or messy water stops, just bite, nip or tear the plastic pouch, then sip and run! You are sure it gets down your gullet and not down your shirt! Not like those messy cups at other races! You can also use them to cool down.

Take as many as you like at our water stops/aid stations. They may come in handy on the way if you need a boost in hydration. Aid stations are located every mile along the course and at the start and finish. You will enjoy a truly unique Jamaican experience – bagged water and Hi-Lyte, a world-class rehydration sports drink!
