A couple of years ago an article in GQ Magazine called Placencia Village “a quaint town that seems to have forgotten about mass tourism.” And, now this little village is the base for a beautiful combination marathon and Belize vacation. Chabil Mar is proud to be a sponsor of the 2013, Placencia Marathon.
The second annual End of the World Marathon is scheduled for December 8, 2013 on the Placencia Peninsula. By all accounts the first Placencia Marathon & Half Marathon was a huge success and an inspirational day for runners, volunteers, and residents of the peninsula.
The 2012 race was called the End of the World Marathon because it just preceded the end of the Mayan Calendar. We chose to keep this unique name and, thanks to the distinguished writer Aldous Huxley, we have a reason to do so. Huxley famously wrote in 1934, “If the world had any ends, British Honduras (a.k.a. Belize) would certainly be one of them.”
The 15 mile long Placencia Peninsula provides a wonderfully scenic (and flat) course for either a 13.1-mile half marathon or a down and back 26.2-mile full marathon.
Beyond the many benefits afforded to individuals and businesses in Belize, all profits will benefit the local Belizean communities.
And while in Belize, why not follow your achievements by vacationing in a premier adventure vacation destination like Placencia, Belize?” Contact our office staff for more information about customizing your celebration by contacting us at http://www.chabilmar.com.
