If your New Year’s resolution is to get in shape, join the club. Several of us at Divi Resorts are embarking on the same journey this year. At Divi Resorts, we may be all about having fun, but that doesn’t mean we can’t stay healthy in the process! On your Caribbean vacation this year, why not join a foot race? You’re on island time, so the competition is easygoing. After spending the morning running, jogging or walking, you’ll quickly lose any guilt you might have about overindulging at pureocean. And best of all, you’re sure to meet a range of friendly fitness-focused tourists and locals alike.
We’ve assembled a short list of scheduled races on our islands. Don’t forget to confirm dates and times with the race organizers. Here’s to a healthy 2017!
