V.I.Pace Runners to Hold 18th Children Run Christiansted

The Virgin Islands Pace Runners announced today that The 18th Annual Children Run Christiansted will be held at 6 p.m., Friday, April 9. This foot race kicks-off the annual Triathlon Jump-up and is for boys and girls 13 and under. Registration and the start of the run will take place at the Sunday Market Square (Times Square) in Historic Christiansted. It will finish at the Christiansted Historic Site of the National Park Service and cover a distance of 530 meters.
The event will be “live and in color” for the participants as they run down King Street sharing the same route, including the finish line, with America’s Paradise Triathlon and, most recently, the 70.3 St. Croix Half-Ironman.
The event is sponsored by the Virgin Islands Track and Field Federation (VITFF), organized by V.I.Pace Runners in collaboration with the Christiansted Restaurant and Retail Association and the National Park Service.
All boys and girls are encouraged to participate in the Children Run Christiansted History Quiz, which is available online with questions about the triathlon, the Children Run Christiansted and The Christiansted Historic Site of the National Park Service.
1] All participants are urged to honor the 5 p.m. registration start to insure they receive a timing chip and number.
2] There is no registration fee.
3] The first 300 participants to register and cross the finish line will receive a medal, and everyone will receive a certificate of participation after they cross the finish line and turn in their timing chip.
4] Full results for the run and the quiz winners will be posted on: http://virginislandspace.org
5] Registration forms can be found on: http://virginislandspace.org
