Haines tips his hat to OTBT

Off the Beaten Track saw another successful year once again. The event managed to attract some of Cayman’s most prominent runners, the likes of avid marathon runner David Haines. However it seams the team behind this year’s route may have surpassed the expectations of even Haines.

“It was as hard as I’ve ever done in my life,” said Haines. The trail run is marketed as more than a just race and it seams this year, and like years gone by, they delivered on that promise. It was enough for Haines to tip his hat to the organisers,  He told Cayman 27 it was truly a test.

“I take my hat off to the organizers, because they must have spent a lot of time putting it together. My God it was hard work, especially the several miles of running down the beach from West Bay to the Comfort suites. i found it very difficult,” said Haines.

But despite that challenge, Haines completed the task in a staggering 7 and a half hours. In doing so he completed the first step in series of difficult athletic feats to help raise $1m for Have a Heart Cayman (HAHC)

HAHC is a foundation which is trying to provide children in the Caribbean with life saving treatment they can’t afford. Next Haines is set to scale 3 Bolivian Mountain peaks.
