Welcome to the most prestigious prize of 2021 for runners.

How would you and a friend like to win a paid trip to the Cayman Islands in the Caribbean, to take part in the picturesque Cayman Islands Marathon (or Half Marathon), with flights & accommodation on us?

Blessed with crystal clear water, miles of sandy white beaches and some of the world’s best diving, the Cayman Islands offer luxury with an abundance of activities and experiences. It’s full of big encounters and little escapes, both below the surface and beyond the waves. With just a 12-hour flight time from London, the Cayman Islands is the perfect holiday destination once holiday season opens up.

We’ve teamed up with Europe Visit Cayman Islands Department of Tourism to offer a lucky winner (and a guest) the following prize, worth a whopping £8,000.

The prize includes:

+ 2 x premium economy return flights to Cayman Islands

COVID-19 Protocol

The Cayman Islands are currently in a five-phase reopening plan, and expect to reach Phase 5 by 18 November. This is important if you plan to travel to the Cayman Islands to participate in the Walkers Cayman Islands Marathon. Phase 5 will require travellers:

  • To be fully vaccinated. Travellers will be required to make a declaration of travel with their vaccination status.
  • Vaccination documentation will be checked upon arrival to the country.
  • Pre-arrival PCR tests are required for all visitors, regardless of vaccination status.
  • Verified vaccinated travellers will require no days in quarantine. Unverified vaccinations will require travellers to undertake a 10-day quarantine period.

Vaccinated persons travelling to the Cayman Islands must have a secure verifiable vaccination record. “Secure verification” means that the validity of your vaccination record can be verified through the use of approved technological solutions. For the UK, this is in the form of the NHS certificates or the NHS app with proof of your vaccination.
