The relay race was part of the Department’s contribution to the Church’s anniversary celebration, being held from Saturday, January 10 to Sunday, January 18, 2015, under the theme “THE RESTORATION OF ALL THINGS.”

Athletes from several churches in and around Kingstown, together with representatives from the Leeward, Windward and Marriaqua areas participated.

The race began opposite the entrance to the Leeward Bus Terminal, through Rose Place, up to the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital. It then cut across to NEMO Headquarters, turning left toward “Block 2000.” Using the main road, the race followed the route through Level Gardens, down Mckies Hill, on to the Richmond Hill main road. From there, it made a left turn to Richmond Hill, Sion Hill, then took the Cane Garden route, down Sharpe St unto Bay St, culminating at the starting point.

Youth Pastor Josielle Primus sees the race as symbolic in the proclamation that the city of Kingstown belongs to God and by extension – the nation of St Vincent and the Grenadines. There are many ills seeking to overtake the youth, but the encouragement is to “run the race of life, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.” The Youth Department hopes that the race will raise awareness that youth have a positive contribution to make to the development of our nation.

The race began at 8 a.m. under the guidance of the Royal St Vincent and the Grenadines Police Service.
