The Irish Jog Turns 20

 

(Grand Cayman – 27 February 2012) The Irish are coming, the Irish are coming!  The 20th annual St. Patrick's Day 5K Irish Jog is set for Friday, 16 March 2012 at 5:30 p.m. at Grand Cayman Beach Suites.

 

The Jog, co-sponsored each year by Butterfield Bank (Cayman) Limited and Grand Cayman Beach Suites, has become Cayman’s most anticipated fun run/walk, attracting hundreds of local and overseas participants from the serious runners to the walkers pushing baby strollers.

 

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the jog and has truly become a Caymanian tradition. All proceeds raised from the event each year are donated to a local charity in support of worthy causes such as the arts, sports, health, community and education.

 

Participants will receive a t-shirt and have the chance to win one of several fabulous spot prizes awarded on a draw basis. Prizes include sunset sails, dinners for two and spa services. There will even be a prize for the participant with the oldest Irish Jog t-shirt. And as always there will be free hats, face stickers, wigs and other fun wear for everyone. Complimentary refreshments will be available after the event.

 

The entry fee is just CI $10 per person (US $12.50) and all proceeds will be donated in support of the Fueling Young Minds Programme. Registration takes place Saturday, 10th March at Butterfield’s Governors Square Banking Centre  from 9am to 2pm, and Monday, 12th through Tuesday, 13th March at Butterfield House on Fort Street from 9am – 4pm.
