Registration for the Carifin Games 1 Lap Savannah is being carried out at a tremendous pace, as walkers and runners from the 8 participating financial institutions are making sure their names are on the database before the closing date on Friday, April 17th, 2015. You won’t have a chance after that to participate in the CariFin Games.
The CariFin Games 1 Lap Savannah event, would take place around the Queen’s Park Savannah starting and finishing opposite TGI.
This event is part of 7 others which comprises the CariFin Games event, each designed to promote a healthier more active lifestyle, personal responsibility for one’s health and fitness, closer connection among the staff of the financial services sector, and friendly rivalry and camaraderie.
There would be walkers and runners. The runners go first followed by the walkers about 5 minutes after.
The age group for prizes are 20 – 30, 31 – 40, 41 – 50, 50 – 60, and 60 and over. This is a very exciting series with 3 events taking place in Port of Spain, hence the name the “Urban Challenge” which includes the 1 lap savannah, the Green Mile and the Chancellor Challenge.
Up to this stage winners are awarded with hampers and vouchers for the top 3 overall and age – group winners. The final part of the running/walking series take participants to Sevilla golf course for the final event, the Carifin cross country event. Here the top 10 finishers and age groups 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners are handsomely rewarded with cash prizes for individual effort, and teams via for the trophies. The male and female cross country champion get to keep for one year the Carifin Challenge trophy.
The 1 lap Savannah promises to be a lot of fun, as people of all levels of fitness, sizes and shapes make sure they are at the starting line when the race start.
CariFin Games is a great gathering point and meeting place for the active members of the financial services sector, as we promote personal responsibility for one’s health and fitness.
Come Wednesday April 22nd 2015, we would witness one of the most exciting and closely fought events so far in the history of the event.
Excitement scenes from 2014 flashes before your mind and you wonder if the finish would be a close encounter, taken down to the wire as the first place is decided.
Could Jedidiah Benjamin of RBC make it 2 straight in a row for the 1 lap savannah? Guardian Group runners would be gunning for him as he is no doubt coming in as the favourite. How could he cope with that kind of pressure that comes with that expectation, hoping he can deliver on the big day? Last year’s female winner Lee Hay would be missing all the fun and action as she would not be running this year, as CITI is not participating, and won’t be having a team in Carifin. So last year’s 2nd place winner Susan Russel would most likely ascent to number 1 at this stage.
Stay tuned, Come out and Witness the first event of the Carifin Games
