Taino Beach: Grand Bahama, Freeport, Bahamas
Grand Bahama Dog Days Half Marathon was founded in 2014 as a grass roots running race while raising money for the Grand Bahama Humane Society. Dog Days has quickly become the organizations largest annual fundraiser with participants beginning in 2014 with 300 participants in to 600 in 2018. The funds raised by this race help to spay and neuter about 400 dogs for the very needy shelter.
Dog Days race, located in beautiful Grand Bahama Island, is a true competitive race with a Bahamian cultural flare that will make it unforgettable. Last years race moved locations to Taino Beach to provide better facilities for the start/finish line and runners were greeted with a troop of Junkanoo dressed in costume. Although we have many participants that join us from aboard we have a strong local following that make this event truly unique.
All routes include at least one beach view path and are accompanied by police motorist. We have seven water stations set up throughout the different races and marshals and signage at all important intersections.
In addition, due to it’s success, the founders decided to add on a second giving charity each year. In 2017 they were also able to donate funds to the Rotary Emergency Water Relief Fund. This project, run by Rotary in Grand Bahama, was successful in supplying fresh water to thousands of Grand Bahamians after hurricane Matthew. In 2018 the Directors were able to give $5,000 to the GB Children’s Home.
