The Neal and Massy Group of Companies’ AINLIM 10km Road Race will be held
on Sunday, August 31 with the race expecting to dole out some $2.5 million in cash and prizes, according to organisers of the event following its launch earlier this week.
The fourth edition of the race will begin at Vreed-en-Hoop. Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Neal and Massy Group of Companies, Deo Persaud said that the event will continue as it is part of them giving back to the community.
“This is the fourth year and I want to say we intend to do so for the foreseeable future because it is a part of giving back to the community. This is important to us because it promotes health and fitness,” Persaud said at the launch of the annual race.
“It (health and fitness) is something we encourage with our employees and by extension we want a fit and healthy community,” Persaud added.
Athletics Association of Guyana (AAG) Vice-President, Gavin Hope was grateful for Neal and Massy’s continued interest in athletics. He said that the athletes, especially the distance runners, would usually look forward to the annual race.
“It’s an event we normally would look out for on our calendar, and it is an opportunity to give our athletes an opportunity to perform; we must congratulate and thank Neal and Massy for their continued efforts with the 10k race,” Hoped indicated.
Registration is opened at the Guyana Olympic Association Headquarters in Kingston and athletes are urged to register early for the event and avoid the last minute rush. Five categories will be contested in the juniors, seniors, masters 35-54 and masters 55 and over. There will also be a 5k walk/jog, which is opened to the public.
