The Marathon

Thirty-five years to the date of this writing, the Trinidad and Tobago International Marathon has been taking place. Beginning in 1983, it originally was known as the Mirror Marathon, titled for its main sponsor. Over the years, the event changed hands a few times, but always maintained. It became well-known during the era of CLICO’s title sponsorship until the eventual CL Financial fiasco of 2009/2010.

Today the Trinidad and Tobago Marathon Committee, headed by Diane Henderson, continues working on the event’s success and popularity. The 2018 edition expects to see approximately 400 participants and 100 relay teams cover its 42km~ distance from Saint Mary’s Junction, Freeport, to the Queen’s Park Savannah, Port of Spain.
