The theme for this year’s Nation Funathlon – fuelled by Sol Barbados – is Go Further For A Healthier Barbados.
Thousands of enthusiasts take part every year.
The event will begin and end in Queen’s Park.
The aim of this charity walk and run is to drive awareness of the negative impact violence has on our community and encourage persons to strive to build a better Barbados and support causes with positive preventative and intervention programmes.
