Banks DIH Limited has renewed its partnership with Courts Guyana Inc. for the seventh annual Courts 10K and 3K athletic road races tomorrow around Georgetown.
The local beverage giant made the commitment during a presentation ceremony yesterday at Thirst Park where they handed over the sponsorship cheque for the event which will be sponsored under the Rain Forest Waters brand.
The presentation was made by Clive Pellew, Water Beverage Brand Manager to Pernell Cummings, Courts Marketing Manager in the presence of Aubrey Hutson, Amateur Athletics of Guyana (AAG) President, Race Coordinator James Cole and Banks DIH Outdoor Events Manager, Mortimer Stewart.
Cummings thanked Banks DIH Limited for supporting the programme once again as the two companies continue their partnership to foster the development of sports in Guyana, a release from the sponsors stated.
The 10Km race will attract most of the country’s leading male and female distance runners in what is regarded as the leading 10K road race locally.
The races will start and end at Courts Store on Main Street. Employees of the company will compete in the 3K race while there will also be a Golden mile (1500 metres) for children between 10-16 years old.
Over two million dollars in cash and other incentives will be up for grabs.
Huston is encouraging the public to come out and support the event which commences at 6am.
