The Gleaner Company celebrates 180 years with its first ever 5K Run - @JamaicaGleaner
Kingston, Jamaica: The Gleaner Company Limited celebrates its 180th anniversary on September 13, 2014. As part of our celebratory activities, the 'Old Dame of North Street' will host the 'Fit for 180, Fit for Life' 5K Run.
The Gleaner has always promoted healthy living and The Gleaner's 180 5K Run is an extension of that goal. The race will begin at The Gleaner Company's head office at 6:30 am, with a pre-race warm up session with Spartan Health Club's Steve Ming at our East Street parking lot at 6 am.
The Gleaner continues to promote 'Destination Downtown', so runners will be led on a route along South Camp Road, onto Marescaux Road, down Heroes' Circle and ending on East Street.
The Gleaner's 180 5K Run is for runners and walkers of all fitness levels and ages and is being organised by Running Events Limited.
Persons wishing to participate in the run will be required to pay $1000. The first 1000 persons to register will receive a limited edition Gleaner 180 bag. Teams with 50 or more persons will pay a discounted price of $900 per person.
The fun will not end at the finish line as participants will be feted to a breakfast party, using their race BIBS for entry. A first of its kind, the breakfast party will see participants being treated to an array of healthy meals, refreshing beverages and high-energy music by Flava Unit Sound System.
