Irish eyes focused on big day

Irish Jog enthusiasts are in sight of one of the most popular gatherings on the Cayman Islands’ sports calendar, an event that has also become a classic community fundraiser.  

The annual St. Patrick’s Day 5K Irish Jog is set for Friday, 15 March, at 5.30pm at Grand Cayman Beach Suites.  

It is co-sponsored each year by Butterfield Bank and Grand Cayman Beach Suites.  

The Irish Jog has established itself of late as one of Cayman’s most anticipated fun run/walk events, attracting hundreds of local and overseas participants – from serious athletes to walkers pushing baby strollers. 

David Shibli won the Irish Jog last year. This year marks the 21st anniversary of the jog. 

Participants will receive a T-shirt and have the chance to win spot prizes awarded on a draw basis. Prizes include sunset sails, dinners for two and spa services. As always, there will be free hats, face stickers, wigs and other fun wear for everyone. Complimentary refreshments will be available afterward. 

Entry is $10 per person. Proceeds will be donated to the Sunrise Adult Training Centre.  

Registration takes place from 9am to 4pm on Monday and Tuesday, 11 and 12 March, at Butterfield House on Fort Street in George Town.  

Registration is also open from 9am to 4pm on Wednesday and Thursday, 13 and 14 March, at Britannia golf course, as well as from 9am to 5.15pm on Friday, 15 March, at the same location.
