Race walkers will resume the intense battle for honours when the Cavalier’s Sports and Tour Club (CS&TC) in association with the Soesdyke Community Policing group presents several 10K race walks in commemoration of the recently departed PRO, Olga Harry starting Sunday March 17 next.
Several of the country’s top walkers are expected to participate in Sunday’s event dubbed ‘Olga Harry Memorial Race Walk’ which starts at the Cecil Harry Photo Studio, Back Road Soesdyke, proceeds around the community and culminates at the place of origin.
Later on, at 17:00hrs on that same day, the walkers will assemble at First Hill on the Linden Soesdyke Highway for another 10K trek up to the CPG Office further down the Linden Soesdyke Highway.
While several competent athletes are expected to grace the starting line, all eyes will be riveted on National Race walk champion, Rudolph Mitchell as he attempts to stretch his unbeaten streak to a phenomenal 119.
Meanwhile, Ms Harry’s daughter, USA based Guyanese Marcia Linton, has donated a trophy for the winner of the event and recently handed over the prize to Chairman of the Soesdyke Community Policing Group, Cecil Harry, who has been appointed as the coordinator of activities (CSTC). Mr. Harry expressed gratitude to his benefactor and urged other businesses and individuals to render similar support towards the sustenance of the CS&TC.
Mr. Harry will send the athletes on their way at 06:00hrs and later on, he will present the various winners with their prizes.
Successful participants will receive trophies, medals and other lucrative prizes and those desirous of participating in the race are asked to grace the starting line at 06:00hrs on race day for a prompt start at 06:30hrs.
