The Milo Western Relays organisers have decided to cancel the 2021 staging of the event.
On Tuesday (27 Jan), Jamaica’s Prime Minister Andrew Holness said Cabinet has agreed that sporting events can resume but under certain conditions.
However, the sporting event organisers must apply to the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development and the Ministry of Health and Wellness to get approved.
The window for such is between the period of February 1 and February 28, 2021.
Sporting events will only be permitted in controlled venues, that is, perimeter fencing in place, access to proper sanitary conveniences and conducive to appropriate security measures.
In a release, the organisers said Milo Western for 2021 “has been cancelled for the first time since it started in 1978.”
The Milo Western Relays was set for 13 February 2021.
“We hope it will return next year.
Several Olympic Games and World champions such as Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, Elaine Thompson-Herah, Asafa Powell, Nesta Carter, Kaliese Spencer and Tajay Gayle.

Montego Bay track is not done anyway. Hopefully next year it will be repaired.
