By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The University of Belize is getting ready for its Annual UB Relathon on Saturday, April 1. The traditional race organized in relay fashion by the University of Belize starts at the same time in San Ignacio for its men runners and in Belmopan for its women.
The men’s objective is to pass the women on their way to Belize City where it finishes at UB/ITVET. The women’s objective is just the opposite; not to be passed by the men.
The women have won 19 times and the men 18.
The race was started in 1977 in the days of the Belize Technical College which later merged with other institutions to become the University of Belize.
The UB Relathon will finish with a ‘We Finish Run’ After Bash! At the ITVET Campus on Freetown Road in Belize City from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm.
The UB Relathon is held to raise funds in support of the Student Bursaries Fund.
