Travel Provider the Marabana Havana Marathon Announces Exclusive, Authorized Five-Day Program for Runners             Avid marathon runners who like to collect passport stamps along with their completion medals can set their sights on the Marabana Havana Marathon this year.  Insight Cuba, the official U.S. travel provider for the Marabana Havana Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K and 5K, is offering Americans the exclusive opportunity to legally participate in this momentous run through the historic city on Sunday, November 18, 2012.             “It has been a dream of mine to see scores of Cubans and Americans running side by side for 26.2 miles, sharing in a day full of individual and collective triumphs,” said Tom Popper, director of Insight Cuba.  “This marathon is the ultimate people-to-people experience and something that's been largely impossible for most U.S. runners since 1963.” Insight Cuba, the leading provider of authorized people-to-people travel to Cuba for U.S. citizens, has created a five-day/four-night program that will run November 15-19.*  Established in 1987, the Marabana Havana Marathon draws an international crowd, comprised of some of the world's top runners. “We are proud to partner with Insight Cuba and provide Americans this very special opportunity,” said Carlos Gattorno, race director of Marabana Havana Marathon.  “We look forward to having hundreds of runners from across the U.S. at the starting line, bridging the divide between countries.” One of the Caribbean's premier sporting events, the course winds its way through magnificent avenues lining the UNESCO World Heritage city and past historic places of interest, including the famous MalecĂłn – a broad esplanade, roadway and seawall which stretches along the coast of Havana from the mouth of Havana Harbor in Old Havana to the vibrant neighborhood of Vedado. Along the way, runners can take in the sights of the historic and symbolic Hotel Nacional de Cuba, expansive Revolution Square, and the monument tribute to national hero JosĂ© MartĂ­. The course passes through the Parque Central, the hub of Havana's social activity where heated discussions take place about the national sport, baseball, as well as the impressive Cabaña Fortress, Morro Fortress and the Castillo de la Real Fuerza, which protect Havana's beautiful harbor. In addition to the marathon, runners will also enjoy exclusive people-to-people encounters, which will include memorable meetings with both Cuban runners and disabled athletes. Informative tours of the University of Sports “Manuel Fajardo” and Sports Medicine Institute in Havana will also be featured.
