The 7th annual Church Ground "marathon" - a distance of 11 km - is just about two weeks away (4th May 2009) and many athletes on Nevis (and St. Kitts) have already started warming up for the event. The run is hosted every year by the Church Ground Sports and Social club, led by Spencer Hanley. Registration is already open and early registrants will pay $20.00 EC while persons registering on the day of the race, will pay $25.00 EC. All participants will receive a commemorative T-shirt.
On the completion of the race, the general Public is encouraged to stay at the Villa grounds to enjoy what effectively would be a family day with lots of food, music, a cricket match involving the under 13’s cricketers, dominoes and other fun activities. Lots of fabulous prizes will be distributed as well.
Registration forms are available at the Nevis Tourism Authority and the Department of Youth and Sports. Mr. Hanley can also be contacted at 662-7094. A registration form and further race details will be posted here shortly.
