STAR Gives Information on Three Upcoming Events

St. Thomas Association of Roadrunners reminds runners of Martin Luther King Jr. Walk/Run, the Women’s Jogger Jam. Also, there will be a 26.2 mile run for cruise ship passengers and locals.
* Runners are reminded that STAR’s Martin Luther King Jr. 5K Walk/Run will be held on Sunday, Jan. 17, at Vitraco Park. The walk starts at 7:15 a.m.; the run starts at 7:30 a.m. For more information, call Dale Joseph at 777-3959.
* The Women’s Jogger Jam will take place at 4:30 p.m. on Jan. 31 starting at the Fruit Bowl, Wheatley Center.
* STAR (St. Thomas Association of Roadrunners) has been asked to conduct a full-26.2 mile marathon on Monday, Feb. 1 on behalf of a group of cruise ship passengers that want to run marathons in various ports of call. The V.I. Department of Tourism is expected to support the event. The run will start as soon as the passengers disembark — tentatively 7:30 a.m. The course will be comprised of multiple loops between Havensight and Tortola Wharf. Local runners are welcome to participate.
Most urgently, STAR is asking for volunteers to help with the run. The starting time is 7:30 a.m. — determined exactly by the arrival time of the cruise ship — so it will be warmer runners prefer. Close attention to the visiting runners will be necessary with water stops, sentries and lap counters. To volunteer, please call Therese Hodge at 775-6373.
