Banks DIH to refresh Courts 10k athletes this weekend
Banks DIH Limited has again renewed its partnership with Courts Guyana Inc. for the seventh annual Courts 10K and 3K athletic Road races set for Sunday (October 1) around Georgetown.
The local beverage giant made the commitment during a presentation ceremony on Friday at Thirst Park to hand over the sponsorship cheque for the event, which will be sponsored under the Rain Forest Waters brand.
The presentation was made by Clive Pellew, Water Beverage Brand Manager, to Pernell Cummings, Courts Marketing Manager in the presence of Aubrey Hutson, Amateur Athletics of Guyana (AAG) President, Race Coordinator James Cole and Banks DIH Outdoor Events Manager Mortimer Stewart.
Cummings thanked Banks DIH Limited for supporting the programme once again as the two companies continue their partnership to foster the development of sport in Guyana.
The 10Km race will attract most of the country’s leading male and female distance runners in what is regarded as the leading 10K road race locally. The races will start and end at Courts Store on Main Street, Georgetown.
Employees of the Company will compete in the 3K race, while there will also be a Golden mile (1500 metres) for children between 10-16 years old. Over $2 million is cash and other incentives will be up for grabs.
AAG President Huston is encouraging the public to come out and support the event, which gets underway at 06:00h.
