The CES Five Island Endurance Challenge, sponsored by the Atlanta Life Insurance Company, is an international marathon and half marathon series for runners, who want to escape to tropical locations during the harsh winters. You have an opportunity to run in the premier island destinations, spend a few days on the beach, and attend the local festivals and parties. This is a real runcation!!! To earn your Five Island Challenge medal, you must become a member of the Five Island Challenge at this website and complete a marathon or half marathon at each of these races.
Like the islands, this challenge is laid back and flexible. You may mix your races, like your island drinks. Run any combination of marathons and half marathons to satisfy the requirements. For example, you may complete one marathon and four half marathons, five half marathons, or five marathons. When you complete your final race, you will receive a special marathon, half marathon, or "combothon" finisher's medal.
