Stride walk set for Sunday

Fun for the whole family

Stride Against Cancer, the Cayman Islands Cancer Society’s annual walk/run fundraising event takes place Sunday, 25 January.

Participants can choose either the long course – a 13.1 mile half-marathon beginning at 6am or a 6.5 mile short course begining at 7am. Both courses begin and end at the Public Beach on West Bay Road.

The turnaround point for the long course is at Caribbean Paradise in South Sound with participants in the short course turning around at The Wharf Restaurant.

The Stride event is the biggest fun walk/run in the Cayman Islands with over 1,200 registrants each year. The event has become a social event on the community calendar in Cayman and families and friends are encouraged to register.

Stride is also an opportunity for corporate teambuilding and fellowship so businesses, sporting associations and community organizations are also being urged to support the event by registering for the event.

Residents of the Eastern districts are being encouraged to participate in the walk/run organized in North Side by residents of that area. That event will begin at 7am on 25 January from the Boat Launch beside Over The Edge Restaurant and end at the Kaibo. Transportation back to the start line will be provided. For more information about that event, call Alexandra at 925-4804.

Thanks to the generous support of a number of corporate sponsors, 100 per cent of all registration fees will be used to support the Cancer Society’s programmes and activities here in the Cayman Islands.

Registration is $25 and takes place outside supermarkets and other locations across the island.

Registration forms can also be collected from the Cayman Islands Cancer Society office which is located in Suite 4 of the MCR Building on Eclipse Drive off Eastern Avenue or by going to or emailing a request to [email protected].
