January 21st is the date for this year’s Butterfield & Vallis 5k (right on the heels of Bermuda Race Weekend.)
The Bermuda Heart Foundation will be the recipients of the race proceeds and this race will launch their Heart Month (February) events.
The races kick off at 8.30am with a new 1k race for lower primary students. At 9.00am the Primary and Middle School Boys and Girls will run the 2.7k route and at 9.30 the Senior School students and adults will run 5K. Walkers will start 5 minutes after the runners.
$500 will be awarded to the Primary, Middle and Secondary schools with the most entries.
Oranizers have exciting news as New York Presbyterian Hospital (in conjunction with the Bermuda Heart Foundation) have donated the main draw prize of TWO round trip tickets to New York, a 2 night stay at the Helmsley Tower hotel and 2 tickets to a Broadway show.
They will also draw for 2 pedal bikes from Winners’ Edge and Sportseller vouchers.
BF&M have kindly donated Fitbits to all category winners.
There will also be a corporate prize for the company with the most entries.
Volunteers from the Bermuda Heart Foundation will be assisting with the race as “super heroes” – marshaling the course and manning the water stops. Look out for them in their red capes.
We will also have a jump rope demonstration by the Bermuda Jump Rope Federation.
2018 is an exciting year for Butterfield & Vallis as we will be celebrating 100 years in business.
The first 1,000 participants will receive a commemorative goodie bag filled with product and a fabulous dri-fit shirt courtesy of New York Presbyterian Hospital.
The first 1,000 finishers will receive a commemorative medal and all prize winners will receive a gift certificate AND a commemorative glass mug.
