DIMITRA RETURNS AS A MARATHON PARTICIPANT
During the summer period, Dimitra and her family vacationed in The Bahamas, truly enjoyed their holiday and vowed to return soon. Being an endurance runner, Marathon Bahamas was the perfect opportunity and an easy sell to her husband for a January return.
Dimitra will be participating in the marathon regaled in a military ruck sack, which weighs 35lbs and field or combat boots. Her first attempt, in this type of endurance event, was at the Bataan Memorial Death March in March 2016 which offered steep elevations and not-so-perfect endurance weather and she completed the marathon course.
Dimitra’s participation is not just for the challenge but, more importantly, to honor the fallen solider.
Running is truly Better in the Bahamas.

MARATHON BAHAMAS IS #95 FOR NATE
Golf was the weekend activity of choice for Nate Larson until he moved from Atlanta to Manhattan, New York 10 years ago.
Running allowed Nate the time to focus on himself, he became engrossed in the sport and truly enjoys the ‘me’ time it brings to his rather hectic lifestyle in the Big Apple.
Nate has completed 86 marathons and has a very busy Fall/Winter racing schedule with the aim of completing his 100th marathon in April.
Running has taken Nate to nine countries (including Greece, Canada, Germany, Iceland, Japan, Thailand and US), competing in five of the six world majors and racing in all 50 states.
He is also a member of the 50 States Marathon Club, Marathon Maniacs and Marathon Globetrotters.
In addition to his ‘me’ time, running provides the social mechanism to meet other runners and travel the world. Marathon Bahamas will Nate’s 95th marathon, his 10th country and will be wearing bib #95!
