THE city of Kingston is fast emerging as the ideal place for marathons and races given its undenying beauty and historic landmarks.

As a result the Kingston City Run, in its second annual event, has again carved a route that will see participants running and walking past some of the city's most iconic landmarks in Devon House, Kings House, The Bob Marley Museum and Vale Royal, among others.

The event is billed within a 'weekend of celebration that includes the Bacchanal Carnival Party on March 7, a pre-race dinner party on March 8, and of course race day March 9.

The cause for Kingston City Run is big too. Like the inaugural event last year, Kingston City Run 2014 will benefit the Open Arms Drop-in Centre, Marie Atkins Night Shelter, Food For the Poor and Missionaries of the Poor -- all working to provide skills training and temporary housing for the homeless as they work towards full rehabilitation. This year the Alpha Boys Home will

also benefit.

The Kingston City Run, which features a Marathon and 5K Run/Walk, begins at the Emancipation Park on Sunday at 6:00 am.
