The Burger King 5K and Relays, one of the longest-running distance events in Jamaica “continues to promote healthy lifestyle through competitive distance running.

BK's 5K is the original 'road race' home for student athletes as well as professional and amateur distance running athletes”, claims Sabrena McDonald Radcliffe, head of sales & marketing, RAL.

The race, which begins and ends at Burger King Portmore Mall, is high on the running calendar of many high school athletes, track clubs, and corporate teams.

Participants in the Burger King 5K and Relays will vie for $200,000 in cash and prizes. Beginning at 6:00 am, the race will feature a 5K run/walk and 4x1500m relay.

Each finisher will receive a championship medal and the high school with the most entries will win $50,000.

Post-race giveaways, danceoffs and other competitions will be hosted by popular media personality, “The Energiser Bunny”, Jenny Jenny.

RAL through its Burger King brand has been at the fore of several sporting events including the 5K and relay series.
