They KISS and tell for 26 miles

Dms Broadcasting is aiming to become the most powerful name in running come Sunday, 6 December when employees from the company take on the four-person team relay in the Cayman Islands Marathon.

Dms Broadcasting will be entering Teams ‘Kiss n Run’ and ‘Kiss n Tell’, as part of KISS 106.1FM’s affiliation with the race, and are encouraging other companies on the island to enter corporate teams as well to make the challenge even greater.

KISS 106.1FM has been the official radio station for the Cayman Marathon since 2006 and each year dms has entered a KISS team.

This year Kiss n Run hopes to improve on its fourth place finish in the 2008 race and earn a spot on the awards stage while newbies Kiss n Tell just wants to finish respectably.

‘We’re all novice runners really but our goal is to get out there as a team, have lots of fun, improve our health along the way if possible and finish well,’ says Richard Harrison who has competed as a member of Kiss n Run for the past three years.

‘The marathon relay gives us all something to work toward and the general consensus is that we are going to try and improve each year.

‘I challenge other companies to encourage team spirit and better health in their employees by getting them out on the road on 6 December to participate in this fun event.’

The Kiss n Run team is comprised of Richard Harrison, Ronan Guilfoyle, Sacha Didier and Marius Deysel while Marin Cole, Cara Hennessy, Krista Pell and Matt Jeffers will compete as Kiss n Tell.

‘We are excited to have the KISS teams with us once again this year, and we are grateful for dms’s support of the race as our official radio station,’ said Rhonda Kelly, Cayman Islands Marathon Race Director.

‘Dms Broadcasting is a great corporate partner that brings a lot of energy and enthusiasm to our event. Best of luck to teams Kiss n Run and Kiss n Tell!’
