KPMG/ Keith Falla Easter Cross Country

The Easter Cross Country – with a history dating back to before the first Easter Festival in 1982 – is still a benchmark for Guernsey runners. And they came away with wins in both men’s and women’s races.

Lee Merrien, already selected to represent Guernsey in the Commonwealth Games marathon, cruised to a comfortable victory and dipped below 24 minutes with a winning time of 23 minutes 56 seconds. Though somewhat down on his outright course record of 23:02 it was a good indicator that he is returning to his best form.  Yesterday’s 10k winner, Luton’s Dan Woodgate was 2nd in 25:12 and Serpentine’s Rick Weston third in 25:58.

Nikki Neal, Guernsey’s all-time fastest female marathon runner, was also on form. Having vowed to stay away from road running this season the 42 year old missed yesterday’s 10k but ran a superb PB to win the women’s event in 28 minutes 58 sec.
