Good turnout for Cinco de Mayo fun run

| 11/05/2011

(CNS): The usual spirited group of Cinco de Mayo celebrants were on hand for the annual run/walk on Thursday, 5 May. Although a plethora of activities scheduled for that date cut into the number of entries on this occasion,the organizers kept to the tried-and-true elements of the event which make it a one-of-a-kind presentation. Sponsored by Carlos and Martin's Tex-Mex Cantina, event shirts commemorated the activity. Performance and random awards followed the theme for the day, as the Glassblowing Studio provided chili pepper paperweights for the first five male and female finishers,as well as earrings and necklaces in the form of chili peppers,maracas,and cacti to random winners.

Cayman Taffy offered a selection of sweets made up of red,green and white confections-the colours of the Mexican flag-which were claimed by finisher number 55-Tommy Williams-,and Eziethamae Bodden,whose finish time was closest to 55 minutes.

Jacques Scott donated the hydration materials and post-race refreshments. The Phoenix Athletic Club, organizers of the action, thanked all participants and volunteers, and wished all present an enjoyable and safe continuation of the festivities to the music of Los Tropicanos during the evening.
