A record-breaking number of participants hit the pavement, some running, some walking, for the 24th Annual St. Patrick’s Day 5K Irish Jog on March 17.

The 3.1 mile course followed the cart path around the Britannia golf course and villas.

In the men’s category, Dominic Dyer finished first, followed by William Edwards; Conrad Proud; Matt Volkwyn, Victor Magalhaes; Jeff Jakubiak; then Derek Larner.

The first woman across the line was Jillian Litrenta. Other results were not available at press time Sunday.

The Jog was co-sponsored by Butterfield and Grand Cayman Beach Suites.

“We’re thrilled that the community embraces the Jog every year, helping us bring much needed funds to the community,” said Butterfield’s Deputy Managing Director, Michael McWatt.

All proceeds were donated to the Cayman Islands Cadet Corps.

“Since 2002 the Cayman Islands Cadet Corps continues to meet their mission and provide guidance for our youth. It prepares them for responsible leadership roles, while making them aware of their responsibilities and privileges as Caymanians,” said Bill Powers, general manager of Grand Cayman Beach Suites. “Without the assistance of community-minded citizens like you, the CICC wouldn’t be able to provide such a great program.”
