ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- Race Director of the Blenheim Trust 5K, Kay Reddy is expecting a fast but fun race when the 3rd race of the Blenheim Trust 5K Series kicks off on Beef Island on Saturday April 18, 2015.

The race, which starts at 7:00am, starts and finishes at Long Bay Beach, Beef Island and will see the ladies getting a 5 min head start on the gentlemen.

“This one is going to be fun because we give the ladies a head start, and the reason we do that is because it completely changes the race dynamics. The men have got a challenge to try and catch up with the ladies and the ladies a challenge to try and keep ahead. So the people who usually find themselves at the back will find themselves at the front for the first few minutes. So it is really good fun,” Ms Reddy told Virgin Islands News Online.

The course is one loop, with runners starting from the beach, run back up the access road drive, turn left onto the airport road towards the airport, run in front of the terminal to the T-junction at Trellis Bay and turn right, back along the main airport road to turn around at a cone before Beef Island Bridge (by the entrance to Little Mountain) and return to the beach.

“Time stops at the tape but you can keep going into the water,” said Ms Reddy who when asked what kind of race she was expecting quickly said, "fun and fast."

Walkers will start at 6:45am.

Leading the battle for ladies are expected to be Katrina Crumpler, Rosmond Johnson and Ni Made Oniasih while the men’s competition will likely include Tarique Moses, Guy Williamson, Reuben Stoby, Julius Farley and Ravi Sukhu.
