Join UWI-SPEC International Half Marathon
The University of the West Indies, St Augustine Campus will once again host its signature UWI SPEC International Half-Marathon in October. First Citizens is the presenting sponsor of the UWI SPEC International Half Marathon.
This year, the Half Marathon will commence at the UWI SPEC from 5:30 a.m. with the 13.1 mile route remaining unchanged; the race will continue along the traffic-free Priority Bus Route (PBR) to the La Resource junction in D’Abadie, before doubling back to the UWI SPEC. The course will be complete with markers and water stops at every mile for the running convenience of the athletes from around the world including the Caribbean, USA, Latin America and Europe.
Over 1300 local, regional and international athletes will compete for over TT$ 135,000.00 in prizes, including specific categories for UWI students and staff, University Students and wheelchair as well as physically challenged competitors. Participation has grown over the years from 300 at its inception in 2004 to over 1000 in 2013 – for this the only traffic free race of its kind in the region.
The UWI Half Marathon will be staged on a properly measured 13.1 mile course, certified by the IAAF. The race will begin at the state-of-the-art UWI Sport and Physical Education Centre in St. Augustine, continue along the secured, traffic free, Priority Bus Route in East Trinidad and return to the University of The West Indies in St. Augustine.
