Restaurant Associates Limited (RAL), operators of Burger King in Jamaica, will host the 20th annual Burger King 10K and Relays today in Portmore.

The Burger King 10K and Relays, one of the longest-running distance events in Jamaica “seeks to aid the development of distance-running enthusiasts including student athletes, while encouraging healthy competitive distance running among corporate teams across the island,” according to Sabrena McDonald Radcliffe, head of sales & marketing, RAL.

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

Participants in the Burger King 10K and Relays will vie for $300,000 in cash and prizes. Beginning at 6:30 am, the race will feature a 5K Run/Walk, 10K Run and 4x1500m relay. “Whopper Vibes Segments” — warm-up dance/exercises will precede each race.

RAL through its Burger King brand has been at the fore of several sporting events, including the 10K and Relay series and the Burger King Superstakes — one of horseracing's premier annual events.

McDonald Radcliffe noted, “We are investing in sports by providing high-performance programmes in Jamaica to help feed development and growth and provide greater value for local athletes.”
