Barbados Hiking Association: Sagicor 2015 Hill Challenge

This year the Hill Challenge is  sponsored by Sagicor Financial Services, and the name has been changed to reflect this. It is organised by the Barbados Hiking Association and takes place on Friday 01 May, which is a holiday in Barbados.

The route is the same as previous years but the start and finish has been moved to Barclays Park. See my previous posting for the route description – Barbados Hiking Association Hill Challenge.

The start time remains at 6am and all competitors are asked to be there by 5.45am or earlier. If you plan to register on the morning of the event please get there a lot earlier so as not to delay proceedings. The entry fee is $25.00 and exact change would be welcome.

The trail is marked with red arrows and red ribbons so you will not get lost. I walked it over the past few weeks. It is good and well-trodden from the many practice hikes by those planning to better their times.

Participants are advised to bring their own water, and snacks, as it will be hot. You will need refreshment and there are areas that you will be on your own.

Water will be provided at suitable locations. This will be in bottles and everyone is requested NOT to throw the empty bottles away. Refill your bottle at each water station and leave the empty container with the marshal.

I will be working a water stop this year. Good luck to all.
