THE Guyana Fitness Games are ready to host the KFC Fitness Challenge, which 30 athletes have registered to compete at the National Park on Sunday, March 10.
The organisers revealed at their official launch on Tuesday evening that athletes from The Bahamas, Czech Republic, and Suriname will compete against their Guyanese counterparts.

Noshavayah King, who has over 15 years of experience in the fitness industry, is the event’s lead coordinator and promised that the event that started in 2015 and has become a staple in the fitness community will be “bigger and better.”

This year, the Fitness Challenge will have categories for Elite RX, Masters, and Teens, all aimed at creating a platform for athletes to display and challenge their fitness levels. RX will have five events, while the Masters will do four or five events.

There are increased financial benefits this across all events, which King believes will motivate athletes further.
While there are cash prizes from G$200,000 – G$100,000 for the top three Elite podium finishers, and G$150,000 to $80,000 for Masters, there are also cash incentives for winning the various events on the day.

The first event starts at 06:00h on March 10 in the National Park with a one-mile run followed by eight rounds of workout and then another one-mile run.
The second stage of the event commences at noon.
Admission is free for the morning session, but patrons will pay $2,000 to enter the National Park tarmac from noon.
