Ultra Run for Charity

At 8:00 p.m Saturday July 30th, 2011, Ricaldo Gomes will be starting his third (3rd ) ultra run for charity.

Four years ago, Ricaldo, a past President of the Trinidad and Tobago Road Runners Club (TTRRC) and a veteron long distance runner , planned a major 51st birthday celebration, not with cake and ice cream but with a true test of his endurance and mental strength; by attempting to run 51 miles, almost twice the distance of a marathon.

Many corporate citizens have come forward in the past to donate to this worthy cause and he is hoping that this year will be no different.  The recipients of this latest drive will be Angels on Earth Foundation – A Home for sexually and physically abused girls, Chaguanas and The Wesleyan Children Home – St. Mary’s Village.

Island Hikers stages annual hike-a-thon

The Trinidad Guardian 04 June 2011

6.27 am from the sleepy village of Matelot, Island Hikers kicked off its annual hike-a-thon from Matelot to Blanchisseuse.

The hike attracted 150 hikers of various fitness levels many of them for the first time enjoying the splendor of the remote North Coast beaches of Madamas, Grand Tacarib and Paria.

Don Mendez of Trinidad and Tobago Road Runners completed the 19.7 miles rugged coastline hike in a record breaking time of three hours and 44 minutes to gain the title of King Of The North Coast.

Mendez said, unlike marathon running where the course is even, the trail, hills and coastline can be rigorous and calls for experience in hiking as well as road running.
