Horse Shoe Classic Maracas Bay

27 Oct. 19

Horse Shoe Classic Maracas Bay

An enthralling 7 mile challenge that starts in front of "Sam's Bar", on the sea shore of Maracas Bay. Run/walk along the white sands until you reach at the end of the beach where a "Marshall" will signal you to the "North Coast Road" where on the other side, you head on to the small village known as "Bogoville". Run/walk through this village until another Marshall motion you to the right direction where you will eventually see the ever popular "Santa Cruz to Maracas Bay Trail". Uphill trekking all the way to the summit (1,309 feet - 399 meters) and distance covered up at this point is (2.6 miles - 4.18 kms).

At the summit, you veer left and head onto another trail that will eventually bring you to clear lands with panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea as you continue your uphill run/trek every step of the way where eventually, a steady downhill will lead you onto another summit known as "Loango Summit". At this point, elevation is (1,642 feet - 500 meters) and distance covered at this point is (5.2 miles - 6.7 kms).

Steady and steep downhill running/trekking through natural forest will bring you all the way back at sea level. Extreme caution MUST be undertaken all the way from the summit as anyone can easily inflict damage onto their ankles, legs due to the very undulating terrain. You will eventually close in onto another village called "Grand Fond Village" where it will be road all the way back to the finish point at Sam's Bar. Distance covered in total (7.8 miles - 10.94 kms).
