ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- After over a month's break, road runners will begin pounding the rounds from January 21, 2017 when the Dive BVI Run Virgin Gorda 5K Series begins.

The series features 3 races- January 21, February 18 and March 18- with a 7:00 A.M. starting time.

The 5K series on Virgin Gorda will be followed by the Blenheim Trust 5K Series on Tortola.
