By Ruben Morales Iglesias, Belize City: More than 90 runners are competing throughout this weekend in the National Heroes Virtual 10K Run. The race is hosted by Erlando Che’s FitLife 501 and the Orange Walk District Sports Council, though Total Time’s Ricardo Salazar is helping with the cohosting.
Runners countrywide have three days to run their 10 kilometers. The virtual event started today, March 6, 2021, and ends on Monday, March 8, 2021, but participants have up to Tuesday, March 9, at 5:00 p.m. to submit their results.
Organizer Ricardo Salazar said more than 90 runners had registered for the event.
Since the race is done virtually, it means that runners do not start at the same time, but all of them clock themselves on their mobile apps which record the details of their run. They, then, upload their results to the organizer at TotalTime – Chip Timing Service (totaltimebz.com).
Meanwhile, the Placencia Splash Running Club month-long run is on as well. The participating athletes run as much as they can throughout the month recording how many kilometers they’ve run on their phone apps and then upload their statistics at the end of the month. The runner with the most kilometers covered during the month is the winner. Luis August and Wanda Stakutis won the men’s and women’s categories, respectively, in February.
Two more events are scheduled for this month: the Power Run: Celebrating Women Virtual 5K Run/Walk hosted by SHINE and Baby Earth from March 24-28 and the Chiquibul Challenge Marathon hosted by the Belize Wildlife & Referral Clinic from March 20 to 31.
