MONTEGO BAY, St James – The organisers of the 10th CUMI Come Run event set for September 23 have lifted the restrictions on the number of people who are allowed to participate in the event, which is the major fund-raiser for the Committee for the Upliftment of the Mentally Ill (CUMI).

Last year the organisers had set a limit of 800 participants in the run/walk event. But at last Thursday's media launch held at 7 Restaurant on Gloucester Avenue in Montego Bay, Junior Taylor, chairman of the organising committee, said they would allow as many as who sign up by the September 19 deadline for entries.

The event is set to start at 7:00am after the 6:30am warm-up, and will see participants taking part in the 5K and 10K run and walk events, with the first three in each section getting prizes. other sectional prizes to will also handed out.

Taylor said the event had grown over the years from 300 runners in the early years to 780 of the 800 who sent in entries showing up last year.
