This event was a great success popular with tourists and local runners.      There were a total of 172 participants, 50 from overseas including 2 from the BBC in London.   This is the most participants we have had for a while.

The sponsor for this is the Ministry of Sports with Progressive Distributors providing Gatorade.  Pirates Week received help with registration from various volunteers including sports ministry and 10 volunteers from Price WaterhouseCoopers who helped with last minute registration and water stops.   The race was run under the leadership of Coach Williams and his crew.

A full breakdown of winners and timings will be released by the CIAA in the next couple of days.


Great turn out for the 5k sea swim, sponsored by KPMG and organized by CIASA, the race this year was held at Beach Suites. For the last few years PW has been trying largely with the assistance of Mr. Frank Flowers to build up attendance for this event, there are few 5k and 10 k swims held  n the region and it looks like the efforts are finally paying off.

There were 71 participants, 12 coming from overseas including several Olympic class open water swimmers.
