It’s an exciting weekend ahead as the Road Runners Cycling Club, in partnership with the Rohrman Sports Association, stands to host the highly anticipated Trans-Antigua Challenge on Sunday, June 13th.

Comprising 37.6km, the gruelling cycling, hiking and biking event promises to test riders, bikers, and hikers to their limits as they traverse from Half Moon Bay to Ffryes Beach. The challenge kicks off at 5:45am with the hikers and at 7am with the mountain bikers, on the competitive 23.5-mile off-road mountain-biking and hiking route. And as if that wasn't exciting enough, the road race rolls off Lonely Hill at 8am, all with over 50 male and female participants in the categories of 14-25, 26-45, and 46 and older age groups.

You can still register online by Friday at 6pm and pay the entry fee of EC$50 on the day.
