January 19, 2024 | 0 Comments

Runners will be vying for top honours in the Butterfield & Vallis 5K Run on Sunday [Jan 21].

Adam Prunty, the defending male champion, is a doubt as he recovers from his exploits in the PwC Bermuda Marathon last Sunday. He came second in 2hr 52min 58sec.

Prunty won the 5k last year in 17:19, finishing ahead of runner-up Will Green [17:46] and Fred Foxley [17:56] in third.

The event, which raises funds for Action on Alzheimer’s and Dementia, starts at 8.30 am with a 1k race for lower primary school students.

The primary and middle school boys and girls start at 9 am, with the youngsters running the 2.7k course, and at 9.30 am, the senior school students and adults running the 5k. Walkers will start five minutes after the runners.

The first 900 finishers will receive a medal, and $500 will be awarded to the primary, middle, and secondary schools/junior groups with the most entries.

Draw prizes will include two Trek Hybrid pedal bikes from Winners’ Edge, breakfast for two at Grotto Bay, and a month of group classes at Alchemy Fitness.

BF&M has donated activity trackers to all winners; there will also be a corporate prize for the company with the most entries.

The first 900 participants at number pick-up on Saturday from 10 am to 1 pm will receive a dri-fit shirt and goodie bag filled with products from Axe, Carolina Rice, Coca-Cola, Folgers, Jif, KraftHeinz, Del Monte, Reign Storm, Pepperidge Farm, Planters Nuts, Powerade, Nature Valley, and Beep.

On race day, volunteers from Action on Alzheimer’s and Dementia will assist with the race, marshalling the course and manning the water stops.

The Bermuda Red Cross will be on the course, ensuring the safety of participants.
