There have been wild boar tear up a good bit of the starting field so runners had to maneuver through a narrow start. Runners this year had to navigate up a 150 meter long hill, once at the start and again just before the 2 mile mark. The back part of the course a 1k loop proved most difficult.

Newsome Coach Orlando Greene: From Caribbean To Olympian Scarlett Fox Oct 22, 2012

  At the gateway between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, you will find the small island of Barbados. The island nation is home to a little over 250,000 people, around a third of whom live in and around the capital of Bridgetown. While pockets of poverty exist today, the country has enjoyed growth over the past three decades fueled by tourism, banking, and manufacturing. As a child, Newsome coach Orlando Greene remembers the rural life he enjoyed there. Each day the former Olympian would run three or four miles to school with his fellow classmates, kicking a soccer ball along the way or simply racing.
