Race returns for fourth installment

The ever-popular annual Gosling to Fairmont Southampton Road Race is set to return for its fourth installment on Sunday, January 13.

In an announcement made by the two companies and the Mid Atlantic Athletic Club yesterday, details were revealed that runners will once again take on a 7.2-mile course between Goslings Headquarters on Dundonald Street, Hamilton, and Fairmont Southampton's private beach and tennis club. The event, which is widely considered a great final warm-up for the Bermuda Marathon Weekend, scheduled for the following weekend, will also includes a competitive walking category, a three-member team relay, and a Junior 3K race.

The Butterfield Cup will be awarded to the top female participant and the Peter Lever Cup will be won by the top male participant, in honour of two of the founding members of MAAC.

As an added incentive for competitors there will also be prizes for the top male and female finishers of the Junior 3K in various ages, the top finishers in the male, female, and mixed categories, the top three male and top three female walkers as well as the first tourists, and the winning Fairmont and Goslings employees. This year the event will benefit the Continental Society charity, celebrating its 57th anniversary year in 2019.

Registration for the race ends on Friday, January 11. For more information or to register for the race, visit www.racedayworld.com.

Breaking the tape: Martina Olcheski-Bell was the first women's finisher, posting a time of 50:57, in the Gosling to Fairmont Southampton Road Race last year
