first_img High Mountain Coffee Road Race fever appears at high pitch 24 hours before the event hit its Williamsfield home in Manchester. There was a beehive of activity at the old Williamsfield round-a-bout, with stalls being erected on every possible land space in proximity. Organisers also anticipate a record amount of entries. Proceeds this year will go to the Mandeville Hospital. The event features the very popular 10K road race, but there will be strong interest around competition in the 5K run and 5K walk. The main route will be the same as previous years, taking participants from the new Williamsfield round-a-bout up the Winston Jones Highway, then through Kendal, around Kirkvine, before ending at the old Williamsfield community park. The current best of local long distance racing will be there, but additional spice will come from specially invited international competitors.
