The Athletics Association of Guyana (AAG) will team up with athletes based in North America to host an Independence Day of Athletics on May 22 at Guyana National Service (GNS) Sports Complex, CARIFESTA Avenue and Guyana Defence Force (GDF) Ground.
“According to the Organising Committee of the venture, a 5km, 10km and a track and field event will be staged four days prior to Independence Day,” a release said, adding that a hive of activity and lots of cash prizes and trophies will be up for grabs.
The 5km (for athletes 14-16 years) and 10km (open) will start at 6am at the Sports Complex and end at the same venue. “The official route will be published in a subsequent release,” the presser from the association indicated.
Five hours later, the youth, junior and senior track and field athletes will swing into action at the GDF Ground. They will compete in the 4x100m and 4x400m relay races along with the 100m, 200m, 800m, 1500m and long jump events.
The 60m and 80m events will also be contested for athletes 12 and under. The top three finishers in the U-16 and U-20 events will take home bicycles and the top five seniors will pocket $40,000, $30,000, $20,000, $15,000 and $10,000 respectively.
The top three Master’s male and female finishers will be rewarded with cash prizes of $20,000, $15,000 and $10,000 in that order. Admission is free.
