If the old 5K fun run route is getting a little too familiar, next weekend there’s a chance to shake things up a bit by moving the course out east.
The Reef Halloween 10-10-10 Road Relay returns on Sunday, 28 October, starting from right outside the Reef Resort. Organised by events managers Race Caribbean, participants will have the option to take part in a 5K run or walk, a three-person relay or a 30K solo run for those wanting to push themselves a little further.
It’s a 6am start for the runners and a 7am start for the walkers – which makes it the perfect excuse to book a staycation in East End at the same time. There are great deals on offer for residents during low season and with the running over by breakfast time, you’ll have the rest of the day chill out and enjoy the change of scenery.
The race is split into three legs with water stops along the route. Runners will leave the Reef and race around the East End Loop following the Queens Highway, Frank Sound Road and Sea View Road.
Breakfast will be served at the end of the race and prizes, including restaurant and activities vouchers and more will be drawn at random.
Runners and walkers can register on Saturday, 27 October, at Camana Bay, or during the week (Monday through Friday) at the Reef.
There will be a registration fee of $50 for relays teams of three, $20 for the solo 30k run and $15 for fun runners and walkers.
Proceeds from the event will go toward organisations working with Cayman’s youth, although details have yet to be decided.
