Upcoming: 2012 KPMG Round The Grounds Race

March 16, 2012

KPMG in Bermuda will host the 14th Annual KPMG ‘Round the Grounds’ race on Sunday, March 18, 2012. This race follows on from the  ‘KPMG Bermuda International Mile’ held in January, and  ‘Dash at Dark’ to be held on March 9, 2012.

Despite challenging courses within a leafy park setting, previous years have seen enormous enthusiasm and determination from age groups ranging from as young as 4 years old, to the newer Senior age band for runners between 13-18 years.

This is the 14th year that KPMG have sponsored this event with race expertise and organizational assistance again being provided by the Mid Atlantic Athletic Club (under the race direction of Laura Keyes and newcomer Deborah Blaxell), the BTFA and Bermuda Timing.

For the first time the event will also be supported by Masterworks, who will remain open for race day, offering refreshments and hosting fun activities, children’s crafts, and adding to the family friendly atmosphere of the day.

Entrants may register for the event at Sportseller or the KPMG office at 4 Par la Ville Road, and online at www.racedayworld.com. Entry deadline is 4:45pm on Friday March 16. No late entries will be accepted.

A spokesperson said, “All races will be chip timed. Chip and Number pick-up commences at noon. The timing chip stand is situated near the start of the race to the left of the South Shore entrance to the gardens.

“Prompt arrival will ensure ease of parking in the lagoon area below the gardens in order that races may commence quickly at 1. Experience gained during previous years has proven that wave starts ensure the races complete in quick succession.

“Please join us to support our young runners in the fun and inclusive KPMG Round the Grounds race, whether competing for a top prize or to simply enjoy the sport of running amongst friends. All participants will receive a prize, whether on the podium or at the completion of a tough race well run.
