The starting line at the sports field on the corner of Aspiration Drive and Olympic Way. Participants will be able to race in the 10k run either as individuals or in teams of 4, in which each runner’s score will be added together to calculate the team’s total score. BDO Cayman director, Russell Smith, said, “ BDO is delighted to provide support to the Cadet Corps.  With the assistance of organizers, Race Caribbean, BDO Cayman is confident the inaugural race will be a tremendous success, and the Cadet Corps event will become a key fixture in the annual sporting calendar.”
