Trinidad & Tobago International Marathon

Run for Life Trinidad and Tobago

Run For Life Trinidad and Tobago, Inc. would like to wish you a Happy and Prosperous 2017! As we start this new year, we are looking forward to our program’s first ever participation in the Trinidad and Tobago International Marathon Relay on Sunday, 29 January, 2017. Our 6 students from the Servol Junior Life Center in Cascade have been training diligently for this event since October 2016, and were featured in the December 2016 edition of The Northerly magazine for their efforts.

Run For Life Trinidad and Tobago, Inc. is a non-profit organization aimed at increasing physical activity among young people with the vision of eliminating childhood obesity. The program was founded by Family and Sports Medicine physician Dr. Nailah Adams, and is co-coordinated by Certified Health Coach and Registered Pharmacist Ms. Ivory Hayes. The students are trained by Mr. Anton Lafond and Mr. Gregory Seale. We would like to sincerely thank the Trinidad and Tobago Marathon Committee, the Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee, and the National Association of Athletics Administrations for their encouragement during our pilot year. If you would like to assist us in ensuring that these dedicated young people achieve the goal they have worked so hard towards, you still have an opportunity to support our runners on Race Day by sponsoring the following items:

  • Snacks
  • Sandwiches
  • Water
  • Electrolyte replacement drinks
  • Running vests
  • Running shorts
  • Socks
  • Running sneakers
  • Transportation

Our students would greatly appreciate your support, and with your help, this entire experience could be life-changing for them. Please contact Dr. Adams or Ms. Hayes at or 868-777-2620 if you would like to contribute to our students’ success.
