“We’re inspired by the Giant Leatherback Turtle… The Ultimate Marathoner”Karen O'Connor
We are a community of Ultimate Marathoners, inspired by the Giant Leatherback Turtle that traverses thousands of miles every year to return to the shores of Tobago to nest.
Special thanks to:
Bernie Conway the race course measurer who selflessly orchestrated and strategized with us to make possible an AIMS/IAAF accredited race course. This monumentous exercise was supported in no small measure by incredible people: Gilbert (Happy) O’Connor who sponsored the police escort for the marking of the race course; Chief and Doc, Sam and Lydia Jones hosted Bernie Conway gratis at their beautiful bed breakfast, The Branch: Penny Camps and Richard Critchlow, two wonderful spirits who prepared the bike for the course measurement and certification; and Danielle Alleyne-Thom who volunteered numerous hours throughout the measurement exercise, and all our events.
To our team that made the Sea to Sea Marathon Launch event possible: Barry O’Connor and his students from Boys and Girls High in Brooklyn New York who took our launch to the next level with a live shout out to the boys and girls of Roxborough Secondary School in our audience in Tobago; Nikeisha Clarke our event host; Trevis Armstrong who mounted our banners; Roselyn Alleyne for sponsoring the food; Malaika and Kagiso for their video contributions, Eleanor Decker, Kay Hodges, and Anne Preston, the women of WCCFitness center who helped make the Tobago launch a truly international event.
