The Stride Against Cancer will draw runners to the streets of Cayman on Sunday, as they support the annual fundraiser for the Cayman Islands Cancer Society.
The starter’s gun for the main events, a half-marathon and quarter marathon, goes off at 6 a.m. and 7 a.m., respectively, at Seven Mile Public Beach.
The quarter marathon course runs down West Bay Road and turns around at The Wharf restaurant. The half-marathon route also goes down West Bay Road and onto Church Street, Harbour Drive and South Sound Road where runners will turn around at Caribbean Paradise.
Motorists are asked to use caution and watch for runners.
There will also be traffic restrictions. Barricades will be placed on West Bay Road at the entrance to Seven Mile Public Beach, and on South Sound Road directly in front of Caribbean Paradise, just east of the intersection with Walkers Road, to manage traffic flow, from 6-9 a.m.
There is also a North Side Mini Stride on Sunday, which goes from Kaibo to the site of the old Driftwood Bar & Grill, and a Little Stride on Little Cayman, from the Southern Cross Club to Salt Rock Dock and back. Both those events start at 7 a.m.
Registration for the events must be completed before race day. The cost is $30. Registration forms are available online. In-person registration is at the Cancer Society’s office, 114 Maple Road in George Town.
