Corbin proves it was no fluke

Dominic Corbin burst on the scene in the recent Fidelity Fun Run races and seems to be getting faster as the distances lengthen.

He won all three two-mile events, beating multiple champ Marius Acker in the process, and last week he proved it was no fluke by winning the RBC 4.3 kilometre run/walk as well.

There was a little time mix up, but he timed himself at 16 minutes 50 seconds.

Corbin, 23, said: “The race went great with lots of people turning up. And the weather held out. I definitely need to run more 5ks as I think my body was just getting used to running for 10 minutes over the Fidelity series.

“It’s a great cause RBC got behind and I hope they raised a lot of money for children’s cancer.”

Corbin will be running this Saturday’ Credit Union 5k and most other races he has time for as motivation for the Intertrust Cayman Marathon on 2 December.

His next run is likely to be the Zombie Adventure 5k at Barkers on 27 October.

More than 100 RBC employees, clients and community members gathered at Royal Bank House, Shedden Road for the event to benefit the RBC/RBTT Children’s Cancer Fund.

This event was one of many sponsored by RBC across the Caribbean and it generated $5,000 to help families with children battling cancer.

Funds are still being collected, and the total amount raised across the Caribbean will be announced soon.

“We are grateful for the tremendous turnout and outpouring of support by our employees, their families and the community,” said RBC’s Jason Waters. “September is Children’s Cancer Awareness Month, so we’re also pleased to aid in bringing awareness about paediatric cancer.”
