USVI Runners Invited to Participate in "Cruise to Run" Race

ST. THOMAS, U.S. Virgin Islands, January 21, 2010 - While most cruise passengers aboard the Caribbean Princess will be touring the island, visiting attractions, and taking advantage of St. Thomas' world-famous shopping, more than 160 passengers arriving on the ship on Monday, January 25 will take to the streets to compete in the 4th annual "Cruise to Run" race. The race, which is part of a special cruise itinerary designed for runners and other athletes, includes races and sporting activities at each port of call.

Monday's race begins at the Crown Bay dock at 9:30 a.m., heads West towards UVI to the Zone B Command Fire Station and then turns back East to Inspection Lane before ending in Crown Bay. Organizers worked in conjunction with the St. Thomas Roadrunners Association, the Department of Tourism, the Police Department, St. Thomas Rescue and the Crown Bay Center to plan the race. "The Department of Tourism is pleased to welcome race participants to St. Thomas and invites local runners to take part in this fun event," said Assistant Tourism Commissioner Monique Sibilly-Hodge. Registration for the race is free and takes place at 9 a.m. at the eastern gate at Crown Bay Dock. The Department of Tourism will provide gift bags to the first five runners to finish the course. Drinking water and power drinks will be donated by Coca-Cola.

For more information about the race contact Joryn Turnbull at the Department of Tourism at (340) 774-8784 or Therese Hodge of the St. Thomas Roadrunners Association at (340) 775-6373.
