Off The Beaten Track 50K Ultra-Marathon

Thanks to everyone who took part, volunteered and sponsored the 2015 race! Results can be found here.


Off The Beaten Track (OTBT) is an annual charitable 50KM ultra-marathon designed to emulate the Marathon des Sables. It leads participants on a route along un-chartered, lush, tropical bush, on the sandy beaches and through unseen back roads on Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands.

This one of-a-kind marathon experience offers two challenging options to its runners:

  1. For the seasoned individual runner, there is the opportunity to tackle this 50 kilometer cross-country course in the sizzling sun of Cayman.
  2. Participate as a relay team consisting of 6 members, collectively running the distance in six stages

Established in 2010 by KRyS Global Founder and Executive Chairman and ultra-marathon runner, Kenneth Krys, OTBT maintains its adrenaline-charged reputation in Grand Cayman with a different route every year.

With running enthusiasts like Derek Larner from Race Caribbean designing the course, expect to be pushed to your limits as he conjures paths for this route that may not even exist until just days before the run!

What’s equally rewarding about OTBT 2015 is that once registered, participants are also contributing to a local charity in the Cayman Islands, Meals on Wheels and the international charity, Facing Africa.
