ORGANISERS are expecting about 500 runners to compete at the Korovuto College Fun Run in Nadi tomorrow.

The event will be held in memory of fallen track star, Roy Ravana Jr and is expected to be the biggest event hosted by the Jet Runners Club this year.

Club president Abhinesh Kumar said they had received a lot of interest from students.

"About 15 students and teachers from the Nadi Special School are expected to compete and about 10 runners from Burenitu Village School all the way in Nabukelevu, Serua," he said.

"School headteacher Epineri Vuli said they wanted to use these event as their preparations for the Chow Games. All western athletics clubs are expected to compete and we are expecting the Ministry of Youth staff in the West and the UNDP staff in the West to compete as well."

Kumar said the event was a build-up to the Suva Marathon which would be held on October 4 in the Capital City.

"Registrations start at 6.30am at the Korovuto College and the race is scheduled to start at 8am.

"Entry fee is $1 for all primary school students, $2 for secondary school students and $3 for open and veteran competitors.

"Trophies and prizes will be up for grabs in all categories and the major lucky dip prize winner will spend a night for two at the Radisson Resort with breakfast and dinner."

Kumar said Fiji National Sports Commission chairman Peter Mazey would be the chief guest at the event.
