The 35th Annual Women’s Jogger Jam will be held at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 29, in the Wheatley Shopping Center. Loyally and generously sponsored by The Fruit Bowl for many years, this all-women event usually draws the largest field of participants of any of the St. Thomas Association of Runners’ (STAR’s) footraces.
This year the Jam is expected to attract as many as 400 participants — walking, jogging or running the two-mile course. The Fruit Bowl will donate an additional $5 to benefit the Family Resource Center for each finisher.
Awards will be bestowed to the top three finishers in each of 10 age categories, the youngest being for ages six and under, the oldest being 80 and over. In addition, the team challenge trophy will be awarded to the school, group or organization with the most participants. The first 300 registered finishers will receive T-shirts.
Registration fees are $3 for youth 18 and under, $8 for adults or $5 for adults who are STAR members. Early registration will take place up through Jan. 28 at the Fruit Bowl during business hours or at The Caribbean Surf Company in Havensight Mall, Royal Dane Mall or the Red Hook Shopping Center.
The entry fee on race day will be $10 for any category. Men are encouraged to come out to cheer participants on. Their help as volunteers would be greatly appreciated.
