Guam Annual Marathon

For the more versatile runner-sports enthusiast, there are a variety of activities available after the race. If you wanted to extend your visit, you could easily combine marathon recovery with some world-class diving. You can swim in warm, tropical waters with visibility to 30 feet. There are even opportunities to dive Guam, Rota and neighboring islands.

If you still want to use your legs after the race, but would like to slow it down some, you can hike to waterfalls that are found throughout Guam's interior. Hikes range from easy to difficult.

Our marathon follows a scenic path along Guam's coastline. This new course takes you past numerous historic markers and sites commemorating Guam's place in the Pacific theatre of WWII.

Guam is a beautiful island with hotels that are second to none anywhere. You can go top-of -the line or we can help you arrange enconomy digs.
