Cross relay wants 100

The road racing season is fully under way and the next major event comes with the ever expanding Cross Island Relay this weekend.

It is the 40th annual Fidelity Cross Island Relay on Sunday Feb. 2 and the organizers hope to break the record 93 of last year and even reach the magic number of over 100.

The Cross Island Relay, sponsored by Fidelity and organized by the Hash House Harriers takes place every year at this time. It is the oldest running race event in the Cayman Islands, consisting of teams of six people running roughly four miles each, passing a baton between them as they go, starting in Gun Bay, East End at 6 a.m. and finishing at Smith Cove, George Town.

There are T-shirts for all participants, trophies for male, female and corporate divisions and random prizes for individual runners.

Last year, Dominic Corbin ran the fastest leg, for Cayman Express and they beat the previous champs, the British Bulldogs. Many of Cayman’s fastest runners were in teams last year, including Jason Saunders, James Murray, Chadwick Webster, Marius Acker, Derek Larner, Neil Ainscow, James Ogden, Tom Gammage and Dave Walker.

The women have strong representation too and last year included Tiffany Cole, Claire Critchley, Evelyn Ritch and Justine Plenkiewicz.
