The 9th Annual Dee Clayton Classic Body Building and Fitness Championship set for tomorrow at the Pacific Islands Club Saipan’s Charley’s Cabaret will see a record field.

Dee Clayton, organizer and founder of the tournament, said that since establishing the event back in 2009, the 28 competitors for this weekend’s contest is their biggest.

She added that the record entry for this year’s Dee Clayton Classic is a sign that the event is becoming popular among the local community and it’s a good thing because the program aims to promote health and wellness in the CNMI.

Clayton said she takes pride in the event’s purpose, which is to motivate men, women, and teens to get fit and healthy. The championship, she added, serves as an event to celebrate the participant’s fitness progress and motivate them to continue in their journey.
