GirlsRunTT Challenge

The #GirlsRunTT Challenge is a pillar of the MSCD’s Pink Reign Campaign.
The challenge seeks to encourage more women and girls to be physically active and increase their involvement and participation in sport.
In recognition of International Women’s Day 2023 (#IWD2023), the Ministry of Sport and Community Development (MSCD) will enroll and sponsor 300 women and girls across Trinidad and Tobago between the ages of 7 years and over to participate in Bafasports’ Active Trinidad Virtual Challenge between the months of April and September 2023.
Run, walk or hike a minimum of 282 miles to earn a magnificent puzzle medal that clicks together to form the shape of Trinidad whilst paying tribute to the late Lynette ‘Granny’ Luces, one of T&T’s most beloved long-distance runners.  Featuring the words “Together we aspire, together we achieve” the medal set also includes the following elements to represent the rich culture, flora and fauna of the island; Carnival, Chaconia Flower, Limbo, Hibiscus Flower, Cocoa, Humming Bird, Moko Jumbie, Port of Spain Skyline, Steelpan, Tassa and Scarlet Ibis.
Interested participants can register from 8 – 16 March 2023 at 4:00 pm by Register here.  Applicants will also be asked to state in 25 words or less what they #choosetochallenge in recognition of International Women’s Day 2023. The MSCD will announce selected participants by March 29th, 2023 via its social media pages.
