Hikeathon 2015….Sat 23rd May’15
The annual walk from Matelot to Blanchisseuse known as the Hike-a-thon is the most prestige hiking event for 2015. Some do it for the fun of walking the trail and taking a dip at each river mouth while others approach the event with a more serious attitude and treat it as a race. Each year, as more professional athletes participate the finishing times are becoming faster and faster. It is an opportunity to see some of the remote beaches like Madamas Bay, Grand Tacaribe, and Paria.
Estimated yearly in Trinidad and Tobago over twenty thousand people hike, it is a means of getting to know the secret treasures of one’s country. However walking the 19.7 miles, in the burning sun is not for the inexperienced and does require a reasonable amount of fitness. Last Year winner Roger Rojas completed the hike-a-thon in a record breaking time of 3 hours and 6 minutes the fastest time ever recorded. Second Place was another record breaking time from Francois Joseph 3.22, and third place Cantius Thomas 3.48
On completion, each participant rewarded with a medal, jersey, food, and drinks. The Ministry of Sportt, Penta Paints, and Nestle have all chipped in to make Hike-a-thon 2015 “The Greatest Hiking Event.”
