Running for charity

Elite Sports and Ufukuzo Barbados’ distance running programme gets into full gear on Sunday.

The two entities are collaborating for the Step-It-Up Run Series which will consist of 5K, 10K and 15k races in Belleplaine, St Andrew.

The series starts on a 5K loop at Belleplaine at 4 p.m. and there will be a number of races of various distances that will be staged on an almost weekly basis at the East Coast.

Several organisations are involved in the breast cancer fund-raising venture, including the National Sports Council. The racing programme is also to push the concept of a national healthy lifestyle.
