It will be hot and humid. But the course is flat.

A good friend who is an experienced and accomplished (though modest!) marathoner, shared the following insights on the Cayman Marathon for me to pass on to the forum:

"I have run the marathon a couple of times and will be lumbering around again this year. The temperature starts to rise after 7am and it gets uncomfortable after 8am. The course is flat and twice round with a half marathon and a four person per team relay over the same course.

Make sure you take on plenty of fluids early into the race as dehydration will give you problems later if you fail to do so.

"The run mainly follows the coast and the ocean views are lovely; although there isn't a great deal of shade.

"If you like a cold beer after your run, bring your own in a cooler as the bars do not serve alcohol on Sunday mornings.

"Good luck!"
