VI PACE RUNNERS RACES END AND BEGIN SEASONS

Aug. 15, 2002 – Upcoming events on the calendar of the V.I. Pace Runners mark the end of the 2001-2002 road race year and the beginning of the 2002-2003 year's beginning.
Fort-to-Fort Relay Race Starting at 6 a.m. on Sunday, Aug. 25, the 19th annual Fort-to-Fort Relay Road Race will close out the current season. The relay, which features teams consisting of four runners each, begins at Fort Christianvern in Christiansted. The relay reverses its direction for the first time, and heads out of the fort on North Side Road to Midland Road to Mahogany Road through the Rain Forest to Frederiksted. The total distance is 25K, or 15.5 miles. The first leg is 3.5 miles, and the remaining three legs are 4.0 miles each. Entry fee is $20 per team. Every team must have four runners, the entry form says.
Labor Day 5K Road Race Starting at 6 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 2, the 18th annual Labor Day 5K Road Race ushers in the start of the new season. The race, in memory of Dale Goodwin, begins at Southgate, and continues on a rolling course to end at the Post Office. Entry fee is $5. Runners and walkers of all ages are invited.
The 2002-2003 calendar and entry forms for both events are available at virginislandspace.org. There's also a St. Croix map, which may be useful to visiting runners.
