Participants at last year’s Stroke and Stride

(CNS Local Life): The three-race “Stroke and Stride” series returns next month, in support of young triathletes and benefitting the Special Needs Foundation Cayman. The event, which will be held over the first three Wednesdays in August, each including a swim and a two-mile run, is once again being sponsored by Ogier.

The races will start at 5:45pm at Sunset House, with the event designed to be accessible to runners and swimmers of all levels with no special equipment required. The swimming distance will increase each week from 400m to 600m to 800m.

Race director Johann Prinsloo, of the Cayman Islands Triathlon Association, said of the sponsorship and the event: “We are very excited to continue the third year of our partnership with Ogier this year to promote an active lifestyle in Cayman and simultaneously support such a great cause. Our annual event at Sunset House has become well known for its great atmosphere – both on and off the race course – and 2019 promises to be another great one.”

Ogier’s Cayman practice partner James Bergstrom added, “This is a fantastic community event and we’re very pleased to be able to continue our support. There will be a great contingent from the Ogier team taking part as usual, and we look forward to raising as much as possible to support these incredibly worthwhile causes. Good luck to everyone taking part.”

Entry fees for individuals are $15 per race or $35 for all three events. Entry fees for teams are $25 per race or $60 for the series. Registration will not be available on race day. Participants must be members of the Cayman Islands Triathlon Association, which costs $15 annually, with sign-up available at registration. The minimum age on race day is 13 years and under 18s must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
