American marathoners run Havana’s streets for the first time


In November, American runners can sight-see the City of Havana from the race route of the Havana Marathon, on a fitness-focused trip to Cuba. Tour bus optional.

Marabana Havana MarathonCuba is notoriously difficult for Americans to get to. But after President Obama recently eased the travel restrictions, Insight Cuba, a travel company that specializes in shuttling Americans across the island country, was back in business.

This November, the company will host a four-night, fitness-focused excursion, tailor-made for long-distance runners—the Havana Marathon Tour (hey, no tour buses needed!).

It will be the first time American runners will participate in the event as a group—legally, that is. “I couldn’t think of a more magical or romantic place to bring American runners to, says Tom Popper, Director of Insight Cuba. “We had to wait almost 8 years and now we can finally make the idea live.”

The race route affords runners lots of historic sightseeing—it goes down the famous Malecón, along Havana Harbor, and past sites such as the Hotel Nacional de Cuba, Revolution Square, and the monument to José Martí. And the package comes with paperwork-filing perks like a U.S. Treasury Department License and Letter of Authorization, and marathon entry.

Havana Marathon Tour is November 17–21, 2011. Rates start at $1,995, excluding air fare. www.insightcuba.com/marathon
