Message from the Race Committee 2018

All Bermudians and our visitors,

This is the 109th year of the Half Marathon Derby. Over this period, we have seen a considerable amount of change in our community inspired and organized race. We would like to believe that most of the changes have been improvements in the event. Most recently, the legislative change which ensures that Bermuda Day will always fall on a Friday has given rise to the formal change in our name.

The Bermuda Day Half Marathon Derby.

This year the race committee decided to include the broader community in its search for support, financial and otherwise. What a journey that has been! The standard had been set, thanks to the support received from our title Sponsor for the last five years, Appleby, and armed with our budget for 2018, we contacted a wide variety of local companies, hoping to convince them to offer their support to this important annual community-based event. We are pleased to report that we have been successful in obtaining the support we required to host yet another spectacular race – and the first under its new name on Friday, Bermuda Day May 25th, 2018.

We are honored to welcome the participants and spectators to the 2018 Derby which is made the success, we hope it will be, by all of you and the Bermudian community at large. And, as with every year, I look forward to you ‘playing your part’—either at the start line or on the side lines —in making this year yet another spectacular year for the Derby.

We extend a special welcome to all the visitors to the Island and wish them a warm and pleasant Bermuda Day Half Marathon Derby experience.

An event such as this would not be possible without the kind of support we have received from our local sponsors.

We also cannot forget all of the volunteers who enthusiastically ‘give up their holiday’ so that your experience as participants and spectators is an amazing and memorable one. We sincerely thank each and every one of them.

All of the Prize money has been donated by Appleby and to them we are also very grateful.

And finally, as we pat ourselves on the back, for another year of planning completed without pulling all of our hair out, the entire organizing committee would like to thank everyone that offered us their support in whatever form over the past 6 months.

Happy Bermuda Day Half Marathon Derby to all!!!
