After more than two weeks of rest, road runners will lace up their shoes this Saturday June 11, 2016 when the CERES 10K Series kicks off.

The first race of the 5-race series will take runners on the City Circuit, a tour of Road Town.

The race will start and finish on the Mondo track of the AO Shirley Recreation Grounds.

According to race coordinator Kay Reddy, there will be a 4 mile option for those wishing to “build from their 5k success but not ready to ramp up to 10k, and a 1 mile youth option.”

Short distance runners can make a series but are not eligible for overall awards.

The races start at 6.30am prompt and Reddy is encouraging athletes to arrive early to register from 6.00am and warm up.

The defending champions of the Ceres 10K Series are Reuben J. A. Stoby and Rosmond Johnson.

The CERES 10K Series is sponsored by CERES Juices and NIAGARA WATER
