Butterfield & Vallis Set To Host 5K Road Race

January 20, 2014

With a successful International Race Weekend behind us, the next event on the running calendar is the Butterfield & Vallis 5k on Sunday, February 2.

Last year was a record year for this event with over 700 participants. The race starts outside of the Reading Clinic and finishes at Butterfield & Vallis on Woodlands Road. Steven DeSilva and his Bermuda Timing team will once again be doing the chip timing.

Participants will have plenty of time to compete, enjoy some snacks, watch the prizes awarded, and still be home in plenty of time to watch the Broncos and the Seahawks compete in the Super Bowl.

The event kicks off at 9.00am with the Primary and Middle School boys and girls running the 2.7k route; at 9.30am, the Senior School students and adults will run the 5k route. Walkers will start right behind the runners. The BNAA have instituted a ban on strollers being used in the competitive part of this event.

Non-competitive walkers are still allowed to use strollers.
