The End of the World Marathon is a 26.2 mile marathon that was first held in December of 2012, days before the end of the Maya Calendar on December 21, 2012 in Placencia Belize. Because the world didn’t end in 2012, the organizers of the race retained the name “End of the World Marathon” in honor of the distinguished writer Aldous Huxley who wrote in 1934 that if the world had any ends, Belize would certainly be one of them.
This year, the End of the World Marathon is scheduled for December 7th 2014 and is a good opportunity to not only participate in the race but also enjoy the wonderful things Belize offers like white sandy beaches, mystical Maya temples, spectacular caves, pristine rainforests, and of course the second largest barrier reef in the world.
All runners who complete the race will receive a commemorative finisher’s medal, and over $10,000 in awards and prizes will be given to the top three males and females in the marathon and half marathon.
