As of Wednesday, February 1, 2023

#ANTHONY Saunders, Holly Ferguson, Earl Bethel and Alicia Williams emerged as the overall winners of the men and women run and walk races in the Macedonia Baptist Church Men’s Anniversary 2023 Family Fun Run/Walk Race held on Saturday.

#While Saunders and Ferguson were the respective male and female winners of the run, Bethel and Williams took the titles for the men and women in the walk.

#The runners left Macedonia Baptist Church on Bernard Road and headed west on Bernard Road to Village Road. They traversed south on Soldier Road to Prince Charles Drive. They then turned left on Prince Charles Drive and travelled east to Fox Hill Road. After turning onto Fox Hill Road, they headed north to Bernard Road and west back to the church grounds.

#“This was an awesome race, an awesome event. I was glad to see more churches getting involved in feeding the spiritual man as well as the body,” Saunders said. “We feed the spiritual man a lot in church, but we also have to develop the body and so I look forward to doing many more with Macedonia Baptist and any other churches.”

#As the lone female competitor in the run, Ferguson said she enjoyed herself.

#“It was really good, nice and cool. The route was very nice,” she said. “The prize was good, so I enjoyed it. If it’s put on again, I would certainly like to come back and compete in it.”

#The walkers left Macedonia and headed west on Bernard Road to Village Road, turned around and headed east back to the church grounds.

#“I want to give God thanks for a wonderful day. The race was an awesome one,” Bethel said. “It was nice and easy, so I would like to continue to participate in it once you guys continue to host it. I really enjoyed myself.”

#Williams, the female winner and the 31-40 divisional champion, was just as thrilled by her performance. “It was a wonderful race. I really enjoyed it and the prizes were nice. It’s probably one of the best I’ve seen, so I hope it’s definitely on again next year because I would like to come back and compete again.”
