Club honours Roy

Thursday, July 17, 2014

THE Jet Runners Club from Nadi will host a memorial race in honour of fallen track star Roy Ravana Jr.

The Korovuto Fun Run is scheduled for July 26 at the Korovuto College in Nadi and about 500 runners are expected to compete.

Club president Abhinesh Kumar said he had already asked for permission from Roy Jr's father Roy Ravana to host the event in his memory.

Roy Jr was killed in a drive-by shooting in California, US last month.

"Previously, we used to host this race to mark International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking but this time, we will honour one of our own and runners would be sporting a yellow ribbon," Kumar said.

"It is the biggest event in our calendar in which more than 500 runners compete and last year we had Minister for Youth and Sports Viliame Naupoto as our chief guest and this time it would be Fiji National Sports Commission chairman Peter Mazey."

Kumar said they received a lot of interest from schools and organisations for the event.

"This is the first event in which students from Nadi Special School will participate and majority of the other schools in Nadi have also shown their interest.

"Around 100 athletes from Lautoka are expected to attend and 14 runners from Nabukelevu in Serua will use the event as a build-up to the Chow Games."
