Tokio Millennium Re Kids Race
Friday April 27th will again see Front Street filled with crowds to cheer on local and visiting young athletes in the Tokio Millennium Re (TMR) Kids Race at 7.00pm. This will be a duathlon, open to children aged 7 to 15 to run and bike along Front Street, using part of the very same race course that the world’s top triathletes will race on the following day, including the famous blue carpet finish. Organisers expect children from across Bermuda to participate in this amazing opportunity, including those who don’t currently compete. Registration details will be released shortly.
Digicel Feather Mile & Street Party
Bermuda Heroes Weekend fans and partygoers are invited to strut their stuff in a Carnivalstyle Street Party on Front Street after the Kids Race. It kicks off at 9.00pm with the Digicel Feather Mile, a joyful untimed run or walk to music, followed by a party until midnight. This free public event is a prelude to Bermuda Heroes Weekend and all Carnival bands are encouraged to participate.
Locals will have a chance to mix and mingle with visiting athletes on Sunday April 29th at a public beach to be announced closer to the time, for a Hangover Swim. This casual gathering will be a Bermuda-themed relaxation for athletes from their hard work the day before and an opportunity for autographs and photos on our picturesque shores.
