NMA 38th Annual Christmas Island Relay

NMA 38th Annual Christmas Island Relay

The Northern Marianas Athletics (NMA) hosted their 38th Annual Christmas Island Relay, on Saturday, December 28, 2019.

The annual Island Relay has always attracted hundreds of running enthusiasts willing to cruise the 13.7 mile-long race across the western coast of Saipan starting from Pacific Islands Club (PIC) – San Antonio to the Last Command Post in Marpi.

The much-loved race rewards teams, individuals and youth who finish top 3. Along with these, the “Best Christmas group Spirit attire” and “Best support Vehicle” are awarded.

Results

Agape Team A was the overall No.1 finisher in the 13.7-mile race from Pacific Islands Club in San Antonio to the Last Command Post in Marpi after timing in at 1:25:27.

Agape also prevailed in the youth division with Agape Team C reaching the finish line in 1:34:39, nearly 13 minutes ahead of TanHoldings Football Club (1:47:16).

In the solo division,

  • R.J. Aquino was first at 1:57:03 in the Open Mens
  • Pipit Ball topped the women’s division.

The 39th annual Christmas Island Relay is just one of the many activities and events that NMA hosts in its continued efforts to promote national physical fitness, health and wellness, the fight against obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and many other medical conditions that plague the people of the CNMI. 

As the last event of every busy year, NMA hosts this event in the spirit of good tidings and goodwill with a hearty little breakfast as a way to reach out and thank the many people who have participated in so many NMA events.
