trifrontpage.jpg(Ogier): The 2012 Ogier Stroke & Stride is quickly approaching and sports enthusiasts are being encouraged to take part in what promises to be another great race series. Now in its 14th year, this highly anticipated event which is organised by the Cayman Islands Triathlon Association and sponsored by award winning offshore law and fiduciary services firm, Ogier, willgive runners and swimmers the chance to participate in an exhilarating three-race series.

Nick Rogers, Ogier’s Managing Partner said: “We are delighted to once again support the Ogier Stroke and Stride event. We hope that many of Cayman's athletes and athletes at heart will come out and participate in this fun and hugely beneficial race. The proceeds will be donated to the Family Resource Centre for their Young Parenting Programme. I am grateful to all participants from the local community for supporting in past years and look forward to continued support for what has become a high profile event in Cayman’s sporting calendar.” 

Taking place on Wednesday 8, 15, 22 August and starting at 5:45 pm, each race is a swim and run, with the swim building up from a 400 metre to an 800 metre length over the three weeks – each being followed by a two mile run. The entry fee for individuals is CI$15 per race, or CI$35 for all three and for team entry, CI$25 per race or CI$60 for all three. General registration is available on Tuesday, 7th August from 5.30 – 7.00 pm at My Bar – Sunset House. Online registration and additional information is also available by visiting www.triathlon.ky

The event attracts a wide range of abilities ranging from the die-hard swimming and running enthusiasts, to those who simply want to get out for some fun and exercise. It is not compulsory to participate in all three races and entrants can compete in whichever race they like. A range of varying prizes will be up for grabs following the final race, adding an extra incentive for people to come out and join in the fun.

Dedicated race organisers are committed to running a fun and safe event. The minimum age for entry is 13 and for anyone under the age of 18, entry must be made by an adult.
