BIBA 5KM FINISH

The event on Saturday concluded activities that formed part of International Business Week.

Runners and walkers of all ages donned their exercise shoes Saturday afternoon and took to the road for the race that began and ended at Copacabana along Bay Street. Women pushing baby strollers, young children, and a team of about 71 current and former students from The Alleyne School – up from last year’s 40 – were among those taking part.

An estimated 300 people took part in the annual Charity Fun Walk/Run hosted by the Barbados International Business Association (BIBA).

The event on Saturday concluded activities that formed part of International Business Week.

Runners and walkers of all ages donned their exercise shoes Saturday afternoon and took to the road for the race that began and ended at Copacabana along Bay Street. Women pushing baby strollers, young children, and a team of about 71 current and former students from The Alleyne School – up from last year’s 40 – were among those taking part.

A son and father finished in the top three. Oein Josiah, 26, and Orin, 49, clocked 20:03 and 22:01 respectively. The top female runner was June Knight, who clocked 27:19. The top male and female walkers were Rodney Blackman Jarvis and Cyrilene Graham respectively.

Mialisa Fenty, Marketing and Communications Officer with BIBA was pleased with the turnout, which, she said, was on par with last year’s.

“We may need to get the other schools involved because The Alleyne School can’t be the only school represented,” she said.

Following the activity, participants got the chance to cool down and, at the same time, have fun with Zumba led by a team of three.

The activity aims to raise funds for the BIBA charity that focuses on public health care.
