I cannot believe that a year has passed since our first run of the Derby (in 37 years) out of the east! It was spectacular to say the least. This year, I take this opportunity to extend another heartfelt welcome to both the participants and the spectators of the 2016 Derby which is returning to the west for its start. With the bar set high, I look forward to the thousands that will turn out to cheer on the many runners who will take on either the full half-marathon or the relay. Either way, their participation is what makes this event one we cherish and look forward to—because it is about Bermuda!
I want to extend a huge thank you in advance to the entire community for the support shown year after year and for ensuring one of Bermuda’s most prestigious sporting events remains a jewel in our heritage. Have a great day Bermuda!!!
As we know, an event of this magnitude could not be possible with the generous support of our title sponsors, Appleby, and our supporting sponsor, Pure Water. It also wouldn’t be possible without the countless volunteers who do all that they do in a truly amazing way. And, it goes without saying that my committee is to receive the highest commendation for their commitment this year—despite the hurdles, they pulled it off in remarkable form.
