When it comes to his administration's healthy lifestyle policy, Prime Minister Andrew Holness is leading by example.

Holness participated in the annual Sagicor Sigma Corporate Run on Sunday, completing the 5k in a respectable 32 minutes and 55 seconds, which was good enough for the prime minister to place 1,225 out of 12,659 competitors. 

"You cannot achieve the prosperity vision, if you're not fit and healthy to take advantage of it," Holness told journalists afterwards.

He also lauded the event for fostering a spirit of philanthropy among Jamaicans.

"This is for a good cause and I am happy I participated in it," Holness said. Watch the video below.
