Bull Run postponed

The
annual Bull Run event, scheduled to take place in East End on bank holiday
Monday, has been postponed due to bad weather and as a mark of respect
following a water craft fatality on Sunday, 4 July.

The
quarter-mile straight race will now take place off the beach adjacent to
Pirates Cove Bar on Saturday, 24 July, and organisers have decided to extend
the registration deadline until 6pm, 23 July.

“The
unfortunate combination of Mark Lopez’s death and Monday morning’s small craft
advisory, with winds of between 15 and 20 mph with scattered showers and thunderstorms,
meant we felt it only right to postpone the Bull Run,” organiser Shane Edwards
said.

The
managing director of 2Frenzied Ltd/East Surf Challenge mentioned that the
postponement would allow would-be racers enough time to get their registration
forms and to ensure that their craft were race worthy.

Entry
costs $25.

Riders
must be Caymanian, status holders or have, at minimum, a one-year work permit
to qualify.

All
teams and riders need to be at the race venue for a briefing by 11.30am on the
day of race. Craft inspection will take place an hour later, with the first
heat starting at 1pm.

As
well as racing, the afternoon will feature the sounds of soca courtesy of DJ
Lexus and a brace of guest DJs and food and beverages provided by Wood’s Jerk.

“It’s
a shame that the Bull Run had to be postponed but we think the public will
understand,” said Mr. Edwards.

The
event is being sponsored by What’s Hot magazine, Red Bull, Caybrew and HOT FM.
