With stunning landscapes and beautiful ocean views, Barbados is a runner’s and hiker’s paradise.
Whether you’re a hiker eager to explore new terrain or a keen runner, there’s a packed line-up of events, competitions, races and tours throughout the year. Join in the fun or relax and enjoy the atmosphere.
Hiking around Barbados is a fantastic way to explore our beautiful island. Join an early morning or sunset tour and discover cane fields, gullies, tropical forests teeming with life and fascinating historical sites. Make new friends, enjoy some exercise and find out more about Barbados’ rich heritage and environmental conservation along the way. Each Sunday, Barbados National Trust arranges free hikes to some of Barbados’ most beautiful and inaccessible areas. The tours are an inspirational journey through the history, culture, geography and people of Barbados.
For keen runners, the possibilities are endless. Start gently with the Fun Mile Run, join the 5K Run and Walk, work up to the 10K or test your endurance on a half or full marathon. Not to be missed is the annual Barbados International Road Race Series in early December which sees runners from all over the world taking part in 10k runs, marathons and a range of fun races. What better way to enjoy Barbados’ beautiful landscape and breath-taking sea views? For running in the Caribbean, Barbados is hard to beat.
But it’s not just about the sport. Runners and hikers return year after year for the warm welcome, camaraderie and the friends they’ve made exploring Barbados.
