The Salem Nursery School held the first annual ‘Fittest Man Road Race’ on March 2, 2016 beginning at the Little Bay Marketplace to the roundabout and back, honouring local celebrity James Greenaway.

Greenaway otherwise known as ‘Fittest Man’ is an athlete legend on Montserrat. He gained the name because he only drives when it is work-affiliated. Instead he prefers to walk or ride his bike to any destination. He competed in national races on the island winning the 5K Race in 2010.

 

The Fittest Man Road Race which is the official name for this event was organized by the school’s staff. The head-teacher Mrs. Eurlin Jeffers said that the idea developed from a desire, “To honour someone in the community, some athlete someone who was good at sports…,” adding, “we looked at Fittest Man as he did a lot during his time.”

Greenaway, also an accomplished musician, especially on the guitar and saxophone, and long service technician  at Radio Montserrat was the chosen for his athletic prowess and background, “so we came up with the idea Fittest Man Road race.” Mrs Jeffers explained.

A total of 10 students participated in the race. The first place winners were Cleron Rankin and Keneisha Joseph, second place winners were Jaydon Weekes and Kaeleah Kingston and Bervensly Jean-Charles and Cavisha Greenaway placed third.

Trophies and gifts were awarded to all participants by the Fittest Man who the teachers proudly informed was donor of these items. He donated the T-shirts while parents facilitated the other necessities to make the first Fittest Man Road Race a huge success.
