Bermuda Day Half Marathon Registration To Open

April 5, 2018 | 4 Comments

The Bermuda Day Half Marathon Derby will take place at 9am on Friday, May 25, marking the start of a new era, as Bermuda Day will now fall on the last Friday every year.

Coming out of the West, the Premier David Burt, will serve as the official starter and registration will open Monday, April 9.

Derby Committee President, Dr Gina Tucker said, “The race will be renamed the ‘Bermuda Day Half Marathon Derby’ in honor of Bermuda Day. A new sponsorship model has also been adopted with multiple sponsors.

“In addition to our longstanding sponsors, Appleby and Pure Water, several other sponsors including ATL [Ascendant Technologies Ltd], People’s Pharmacy, ACS [Alternative Concrete Solutions], Cold Fusion Air Conditioning, BGA/FITAID and Estera Management Services, have joined the Derby platform.

“We are especially pleased that Appleby, who have sponsored the race for 14 years [five as our esteemed Title Sponsor], will be sponsoring the prize giving this year. We thank Appleby for all their contributions and for their continued support. We would also like to thank Pure Water for their continued support over the last several years.”

Dr Tucker added: “We look forward to welcoming both the participants and spectators to the 2018 Derby, which is sure to be another huge success because of each of you, our sponsors, our volunteers, and the Bermudian community at large. And, as with every year, we take this opportunity to extend a heartfelt thank you to the entire community for making this year another spectacular one for the Derby.”

The organisers said, “The Race Committee is also appealing for volunteers to assist with Number Pick‐Up on May 21 from 3.00pm to 7.00pm at the National Sports Centre North Field Pavilion, as well as water stops, race marshalls and more, on Race Day. For more information regarding volunteering, please contact us on email: bermudamarathon@logic.bm

    Again, will there be an earlier start? 7:30am is reasonable considering the heat and humidity. If there isn’t a change soon the numbers will continue to drop. Also, with all the additional sponsors, please have a dedicated table for finishers with food not just Gatorade and water. New vibrant shirts would be nice and skip the goodie bags. The race was started for runners not bikers so get back to supporting the well being of runners!

    Any chance the race will start early. The numbers are very telling. No one wants to run in this HEAT.

    The race needs to start earlier. I need an answer…because I doubt I will do it for a second year in that heat.
