The Sandals Antigua team was proud of the day’s success and thankful to all participants. The event was perfect for the family as the day saw to the participation of all ages; the winner of the female run category being fifteen year old Abbe Davis who clocked 50:49 in this morning 10K run.

All winners received prizes from a number of corporate citizens, including Super Power, Touloulou, Courts Ltd, Caribbean Cinemas, Tropical Adventures, D-Boat, Automotive Art, Brydens, Big Banana and hosts Sandals Grande. Other partners that assisted with making the event a possibility were Bike Plus, Cool & Smooth, FLOW, Premier Beverages, Red Cross and the Royal Police Force of Antigua & Barbuda.
