Extreme race registration open till NYE

| 23/12/2011

1-male-beach-runner-brandon-tabiolo.jpg(CNS):  Organisers of the Off The Beaten Track ultra-marathon said Thursday that they were still accepting early bird registrations with a discounted entry fee until 31 December 31 for the 3rd annual race which is set for 26 February. The extreme race covers 50Ks across what organizers said were the ‘unfamiliar’ paths of Grand Cayman. The race presents a challenge for individual runners and relay teams. Ken Krys, who has participated in several ‘ultra races’, including the Marathon des Sables in Morocco and the Amazon Jungle Run said Off The Beaten Track is Cayman’s own version of these, making it the ultimate test.

“There are a great many runners here in Cayman, and I urge all of them to come out and support this unique event.  The team aspect allows runners of all levels to participate, while experienced marathoners can choose to run the event individually,” Krys said.

This one of a kind race will be donating 50% of proceeds to Facing Africa with the remaining proceeds going to the very deserving local charities Cayman's ARK and the School of Fitness.

To take advantage of the early bird discount pricing, register online at www.caymanactive.com by 31 December.  Sponsorship for the race is still available. For further information visit the website www.offthebeatentrack.ky or contact Lori at 345-815-8410.
