Cool runnings 25 August 2017

Cool runnings—Jamaican patois. The phrase 'cool runnings' literally means, 'go in peace' or, 'safe journey'. It's a useful salutation at the end of a text message.

Distance makes the heart grow stronger, and the cool weather we’ve been enjoying in Accra for the last several weeks should help most runners go the distance. AIM Day is just over two months away, 29 October 2017.  You have a choice of several distances with the Accra International Marathon—AIM. From the short 5K distance that is popular with the youth and parents of young children to the 42.2 kilometer distance of the Full Marathon that endurance warriors love to conquer.

AIM2017 Prize Money Just in case the mild weather isn’t motivation enough to get out and get moving, organizers of AIM2017 have just announced that they will revive prize money for those who bring the most creative fun on the course and at the Finish Line venue this year. This is in addition to the usual money awards for speed.

The prize money purse is expected to be well over Twenty Thousand Cedis. Confirmed awards are:
Full Marathon: first through third position starting at GHS3,500 for the First Position winners, both female and male
Half Marathon: first through third position starting at GHS1,500 for the First Position winners, both female and male
10K: first through third position starting at GHS500 for the First Position winners, both female and male.

There will also be special awards for the under-15 categories. Stay tuned for news updates on prize money. In the meantime, whatever your chosen distance or time goal, cool runnings!
