Hey everyone, happy Friday! There’s a new webcam in town and we wanted to let you all know about it!
(Full disclosure: We received an email about this on Wednesday, so sorry for being a day late to the party!)
Ok, so as all of you know, the legendary 8 Tuff Miles road race is less than a day a way. (Side note: Mr. News of St. John is running it for the first time this year. So if any of you see him crying, panting or passed out on the side of the road, kindly pick him up and carry him to the finish line. I kid, I kid.) Sorry for the tangent … back to the story.
For those of you not on island and also for those of you who don’t feel like making the trek out to Coral Bay before 7 a.m. Saturday morning, you’ll be able to watch a new live feed of the finish line from the comfort of your own home or wherever you can get the internet thanks to Tory Lane and Keith Woodbury.
So last year, Tory was sitting at the finish line when he looked up and saw Broadband VI’s tower up on Bordeaux Mountain. Tory happens to work for Broadband VI and thought that it should be streaming the race live. So fast forward one year and it’s about to happen. So very cool!
The race begins at 7:15 a.m. Last year, David Riddle set a new course record finishing with 45 minutes and 46 seconds (Absolutely amazing if you ask us!). So if you want to see the first person cross the finish line, we suggest you start watching around 7:45 a.m. just to be safe. Remember it’s 7:45 a.m. local time, which is 6:45 a.m. EST. Early, yes. Worth it, absolutely.
Remember, Centerline Road will close between 7:15 a.m. and 10:15 a.m. Saturday. So if you need to get through, plan ahead.
See you at the race!
