Kingston City Run Postponed

Kingston City Run 4Kingston, Jamaica – The 2015 staging of the Kingston City Run (KCR), which was scheduled to take place Sunday, March 15th, has been postponed indefinitely. Event organizers have been closely monitoring the effects of the fire at the Riverton City Landfill, which continues to affect air quality in the city. Following advice from multiple sources, including the Ministry of Health (MOH) and Kingston City Runs own health team, the half marathon, 10K and 5K races have had to be suspended.

“We have taken the difficult decision after serious deliberations. While we know everyone was excited to participate in this year’s event, the health and safety of all our participants is paramount”, explains Christopher Jarrett, Co-Chair, Kingston City Run. We wish to thank all our sponsors and participants for their continued support.

Further announcements and updates will be made at a later time.
