Adelbert Browne, a man who warmed Barbadians’ hearts over the years with his athletic prowess in long-distance running, was honoured on Saturday with the staging of the Adelbert Browne 10K Run/5K Walk in his hometown of St Philip.
Put on by Browne’s employers, the National Sports Council (NSC), the event attracted entrants from serious Olympians to fun-seekers to individuals just keen to honour the lion-hearted athlete.
Politicians such as former Member of Parliament, Rudolph “Cappy” Greenidge, current MPs Dr Sonia Browne and John King, along with revered Olympian James Wedderburn, who also hails from St Philip, came out for the event.
Several of Browne’s workmates took part in the run or the walk, which also provided an opportunity for serious competitors to warm up for the new athletics season in 2020. (KB)
