Annual Run, Bike and Run
~Tropical Shipping Duathlon to test your endurance on Sunday~
If you are looking for a good reason to get out and move on a Sunday, this is it! The annual Run, Bike and Run at Port de Plaisance will get you and your friends out of bed early on Sunday morning to test your endurance in this exciting event, which will starts at 7:00am.
The event is open to individuals who would like to try the entire course: a 5km run inside the Port de Plaisance complex, followed by a 20km bike ride and then finishing up with a 2.5km run, but teams of two are also welcome, as are students who can represent their schools in the shorter distance of 2.5km a run, 8km bike and 1.25km run.
The Corporate Category encourages St. Maarten's businesses to get involved by putting together teams of three people to complete the full circuit. The funds raised by the Corporate Teams cover the costs of taking youngsters from various organizations on healthy and active tours on the island.
Registration takes place all this week at Tri-Sport in Simpson Bay and in Marigot. The entry fee is US $15 per person or free for students in the School Category. All participants will receive breakfast and a T-Shirt after the event as well as a Tropical Shipping Shopping Bag at registration.
