Kingston, Jamaica; The Everyone’s a Winner Best Dressed Chicken Road Race Series will stage a grand finale on Sunday, June 15 at Hope Gardens. The three-race series began on March 23 with a 5K and increased to 6K on April 13. The series will end this Sunday, Fathers Day, with a 7K run and walk and an optional 5K run.
Participants have been tracking their fitness progression throughout the series and will seek to qualify for the ultimate Three-Peat Participation Certificate. The certificate will be given to everyone who completed all three legs of the series, the 5K, 6K and Sunday’s finale, the 7K.
The race will start at 6:30am sharp and racers will be treated to festive finish line activities, including post-race refreshments prepared by title sponsors Best Dressed Chicken, giveaways, and live entertainment with singer Dominique Vendryes and guest DJ, Marlon Young. There will be special treats especially for the fathers in attendance with their children, as part of the organizers’ Fathers Day tribute.
The event will be timed with the My Laps Bib Tag Timing system.
Running Events Ltd's race director, Alfred ‘Frano’ Francis is expecting a grand finish to the series come Sunday, following the success of the two earlier races.
"The 2014 Everyone's A Winner Best Dressed Chicken race series has fulfilled it's mandate in allowing all our participants to emerge as winners. Individual participants tracking their results have seen positive changes in their basic health checks, and corporate teams have reported increased productivity and camaraderie at the workplace. It has been a joy to see the increase of family participation during the series and we expect more families coming out to support their Dad this Sunday. "
Race awards will include overall and team categories plus age group trophies for the Run and Walk from 10 to 70 years and over. The series was designed to help each entrant challenge themselves to achieve personal goals as they showcase grit and determination over all three races during the series.
