GMP Graphics & Printing Supports Sport Tourism
Nevis, February 3, 2010 – GMP Graphics and Printing are the sponsors of the two newest events on the Nevis Tourism Week calendar.
The graphics business is presenting the GMP Cycling Classic; a 30 kilometer bike race on Saturday 6th February at 3:30 pm, along with the GMP Triathlon on February 13th.
The bike race will begin and end on the Samuel Hunkins Drive and the Triathlon will begin and end on Pinney’s Beach in the vicinity of Chevy’s Beach Bar.
GMP Graphics and Printing is passionate about tourism and the benefits it delivers. The organization feels strongly that sport tourism deserves more attention and assistance to develop than it is given. In that light, the funds that are raised from the cycling and triathlon events will respectively be donated to the Major Taylor Honor Day cycling event to be hosted on February 27 and 28, and the Nevis Triathlon on March 21, 2010.
The Major Taylor is in its third year and much like last year, over 50 individuals from neighboring islands are due on Nevis to participate in and watch the event. In each of the past two years the Nevis Triathlon has attracted over 175 individuals to participate and watch the event.
The entry fee for each event is EC$20.00 per participant. Both experienced and novice athletes are welcomed. If anyone is not inclined to participate, donations are welcomed in support of Nevis' two largest annual sport tourism events.
