THE cross country race is set to hit the Central Division soon if plans of hosting the inaugural event go accordingly.

Organiser Events Planner and Consultants (EPC) official Vineel Nand said they have successfully hosted the Olympic Day Fun Run in the West in the past.

He said they wanted to revive long distance running in the Central Division through this event.

"The winner will participate in the Oceania Cross Country later this year.

"We are expecting about 500 participants as most of the schools and business houses will be participating. We are in the initial stage at the moment and we are looking at Lami as the venue for the event."

Categories of competition includes open, secondary school, veterans, primary school and disabled students.
