Join Exuma Marathon
Run for Pompey was brought about to honor Pompey, a National Hero to The Bahamas who is considered a key precursor to the emancipation in the Bahamas, which occurred in August 1838.The event takes place during National Heroes weekend in The Bahamas.
RFP works to bring support and funds to students in the community of The Exuma islands who don’t have access to full educational programs or means to pursue post-secondary studies through the Pompey Scholarship.
In addition to the scholarship program, the Run For Pompey Fund works towards providing better educational materials and facilities for the whole community.
Run For Pompey was founded by Jeff Todd and Kevin Taylor with Exuma Foundation of Canada with a desire to uplift and empower the islands of The Exumas and their 6,000 or so residents.
Canadians, Todd and Taylor have been joined by Frankie Ruiz, the co-founder of the Miami Marathon and running guru of Florida, in a quest to create a meaningful event with a goal of promoting community spirit, healthy physical activity as well as raising funds for the Pompey Scholarship.

For runners in the race, they’ll start their first mile in Regatta Park in George Town, the largest city on Great Exuma, which stretches some 37 miles long and lies right along the Tropic of Cancer in the Atlantic.
From there, they’ll follow the island’s main road along the coastline, passing within sight of Crab Cay, Elizabeth Island and Man-o-War Cay just off the coast, all the way to the turnaround point for the half marathon in Rolletown.
Once they make the turn, they’ll head back all the way to George Town for the race finish line.
