The 8th annual Church Ground "marathon" - a distance of 11 km - is just about 1 week away (3rd May 2010) 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.
The race as per usual will commence at the top of Church Ground, next to the residence of Mrs. Myrtle Guishard and the athletes will head through Hamilton, down upper Government Road, right along the bypass road, left onto the Island Main Road, following the Island Main Road to Government Road, left up Government Road, making a right turn at the old location of the Federal office, left at the Park Road intersection, around the Culturama complex, left at CSS, through Stoney Grove, right at Pump road at the Dyer's family resident, to the Island Main Road, right at the junction and proceed towards Bath Hotel, left at the bottom of the hill, right at the tamarind tree in Bath Village, right at the junction of the road going towards VON radio, through lower Bath towards Reliable Motors, to the Grove Park entrance and ending with a one lap finish at the Elquemedo Willet Park, Charlestown. (A map of the route is provided above - finish point has been changed to the Elquemedo Willet Park).
On the completion of the race, the general Public is encouraged to stay at the Elquemedo Willet Park, Charlestown to enjoy what effectively would be a family day with lots of food, music as the CSS 60th Anniversary Sports Festival Committee will be hosting a day of Track & Field and other Sporting Events.
