Nadi club to hold time trials

THE Jet Runners Club will hold time trials for their athletes in Nadi tomorrow in a bid to better prepare for the Suva Marathon.

While the Suva Marathon is scheduled for October 4, Club president Abhinesh Kumar said they wanted their athletes to be in contention for the main title.

"We need to test our athletes to see if they are capable of winning the event," he said.

"They have been training for some time now and have the required fitness but do they have what it takes to finish the race in a time which could see them on the winner's podium?"

Kumar said they had some young runners who had the potential to represent the nation in international marathons.

"We have capable runners but we don't have enough races to test the full potential of the athletes.

"I thank Chris Daniel for organising the Suva Marathon because our athletes need competitions to become better runners.

"Training is not good enough if they can't test themselves against other runners."

Avikash Lal who won the 5KM Olympic Day Fun Run in Nadi in is expected to be run in the 10KM marathon while Ravnil Rinesh Kumar who won the 8KM Olympic Day Fun Run in Suva is expected to run in the 5KM marathon.
