Richard Bartram made it three road mile wins in three years with a trademark fast finish to edge clear of fellow Gibraltar-bound Alex Rowe in a repeat of the 1-2 of last year. Sixteen year old Chris Bain was an excellent third in the same time as Rowe – one second behind Bartram’s winning 4 minutes 28 seconds. Phil Nicolle’s image shows Rowe(2) leading from Bartram(26), Bain and 4th placed Sam Lesley.
Adding a bit of speed work to her endurance base Island Games Half Marathon selectee Louise Perrio was the leading woman just clear of Mel Nicolle with Laura Quayle third.
Ruaridh Harnden won the support race but had to dig deep to hold off returning student Eliza Mason. Paul Domaille was third.
