Short distance road races are getting more popular every year and one that has become a firm favorite on the sporting calendar did not disappoint.
The seventh annual Breeze Fusion 2 Mile Walk/Run took place on Saturday and over 120 turned out to support the event.
Organized by Breeze FM and Phoenix Athletic Club this year’s recipients, the NCVO and Clifton Hunter High School Adopt A Child program, received $1,000 each for their causes.
The race, with its new route from Smith Cove, produced winners in a multitude of categories from ages 12 and under, to 60 and over, along with pram pushers and dog walkers.
Dominic Corbin and Tiffany Cole were the respective male and female winners with times of 10 minutes 27 seconds and 12:54.
The winner for the walk category for men was deputy governor Franz Manderson Sr. who was also the race’s patron and Ashanti Minott for females.
This year’s corporate sponsors included LIME, Maedac and Wata, Monster Nutrition, Cayman National Bank, Roma United Sports Club, Advantage Copy and Print plus over 10 retail partners joined the initiative and provided gifts for the random door prize draw. All participants received a goodie bag and a participation medal.
Organizers say this was the best year by far as it did not rain and the cool breeze was a welcoming change for all participants.
