In 2018, a youth training program ran for three months, prior to the event with sessions that included physical preparation as well as informational sessions in the areas of nutrition and injury prevention. One such event was entitled ‘From Playground to Podium’, which was conducted by Maurisa Gibson-Bailey, Trinidad and Tobago’s only American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM-USA) and British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES-UK) sports scientist/exercise Physiologist, along with Dr. Barry Fudge, Head of Endurance at British Athletics.

Last year there were 740 race registrants and 617 race finishers, with 44 international participants from – Kenya, Guyana, Jamaica, Canada, Colombia, Brazil, Guadeloupe and Ethiopia. Venezuela’s Pedro Mora took home the top prize in the full marathon with Alene Rita of the USA finishing first in the half.
