The annual G’Day Solomon Islands Fun Run is on again this Saturday for its third consecutive year.
A statement from the Australian High Commission office in Honiara said the event is expected to be the biggest yet with over 4,000 participants already registered.
Gold sponsors Solrice has made it all possible by providing 5,000 G’Day Solomon Islands Fun Run T-shirts for the first 5,000 people to register.
Meanwhile, Nick Ellis, General Manager of Solrice said the G’Day Solomon Islands Fun Run sends an important message about how healthy living can help people feel better, live longer and achieve their goals.
He says the company is proud to be working with the Solomon Islands Government, with support from Australia, to fortify our rice with extra nutrition in the future, improving the health and well-being of our customers.
In addition to the T-shirts, Solrice will provide 1,000 bags and one ton of rice as prizes for 1,000 lucky race participants.
Miss Solrice, Camilla Grossmith will also be on hand at the event as well as G’Day Solomon Islands Fun Run Ambassador Sharon Firisua, a home-grown track and field Olympian.
Fun Run participants will have the option of completing a three kilometers walk or five kilometers run and will be treated to a healthy breakfast at the conclusion of the event.
