Farquhars Set the Bar!

The Dursley Stott Spring Handicap Races, organised by the Isle of Man Veteran Athletes’ Club, were held on the NSC perimeter roadway on Thursday 19 March in ideal conditions.

The 5K walk produced some very fine performances. Fastest on the night was Dale Farquhar in 26mins 22secs but it  was Jayne Farquhar who claimed the race victory in an excellent time of 32:27.  Fastest lady was Louise Smith in 31:52.

In the 10K run it was Kevin Deakes who took the spoils in a time of 37:24 with another excellent run following his success in the 20 mile race held earlier in the month. 

However, the fastest time was set by Jamie Newton in 34:07 finishing just 8 seconds ahead of Mike Garrett after a close battle between the pair from start to finish. Mike Garrett’s time of 34:15 is believed to be a new V45 record – yet to be ratified.The fastest lady was Rachael Hamilton in 38:28.

Thanks to the lap-counters,  marshals, judges, time-keeper and all who helped in this ever increasingly popular race event.
