Runners head to Trinidad
Bermuda’s three-member NACAC Cross-Country Championships team departs for Trinidad today where they intend to put their best foot forward.
Representing the Island in the regional cross-country event this year are elite middle distance runners Sean Trott, Chayce Smith and Jay Donawa.
Trott set a new personal best (1:09.38) at last year’s Philadelphia Half Marathon while Smith placed third in this year’s KPMG Men’s Elite Mile.
Donowa the team’s most senior member has been dogged by a hamstring injury this season but has been declared fit to travel to Trinidad.
Bermuda do not have sufficient numbers to compete for team honours in the senior division.
“Unfortunately we won’t be able to compete as a team in the event because you need four to actually compete as a team,” Trott said. “We will still be probably running off of each other, but it’s not going to be competing as a unit.
“But we will put our all into it and look to do our best because it’s an international event. If we can all be somewhere around each other in the top 20 or 30 then that would be great.”
Bermuda will not be represented at the junior level in Trinidad this year.
The 2012 NACAC Cross Country Championships will be held on Saturday at Queen’s Park Savannah in Port of Spain, near the residence of legendary West Indies batsman Brian Lara.
