Josiah leads in runners


Share post:

With a tremendous sprint from start to finish, Oein Josiah captured the second Sagicor Globeathon Step To End Women’s Cancer 5K Run & Walk, which was held at the Bay Street Esplanade on Sunday.

Josiah led from the start to the finish in an event which saw close to 1 500 supporters, including Minister of Health John Boyce, turning out for the cause of “cancer below the belt”.

Another familiar figure on the top podium, Carlie Pipe, was the first female home.

With officials in place to solely track the runners, it was difficult to determine the placings among the walkers. However, former Wales Division 1 footballer Andrew Wilkinson was unofficially the first walker to cross the line.

After the road events, the participants from numerous companies and sponsors engaged in various fitness challenges. (KB)
