On Sunday, March 22, hundreds converged on New Kingston for the third staging of the Kingston City Run. Everyone from fitness buffs to newbie racers were among the vibrant field of participants who tackled the scenic courses of the 5K, 10K and half-marathon events.

As runners made their way through some of the Corporate Area's most iconic landmarks - from Devon House to King's House to Hope Gardens -they also enjoyed entertaining fan zones in front of the Pulse Complex and Eden Gardens. After touring the city, the thrilling races all culminated at Emancipation Park, where runners cooled down at a misting truck positioned by the finish line, visited a number of booths, including KSAC, Tastee and Elle & Vere, and were treated to lively performances by the Alpha Band and high-energy music spun by DJ Sparks. What's more, the event was all for a good cause as net proceeds from the run will go towards the capital's homeless community through partnerships with Open Arms Drop-in Centre, Marie Atkins Night Shelter, Food For The Poor, Missionaries of the Poor and the Alpha Institute.
