The rain subsided just before the off and fast times were recorded in the opening race of the RG Falla series run from L’Eree to Vazon.
In a return to a course last used in the ’90s Ryan Burling (image Phil Nicolle) dipped below Marcel Le Clerc’s 15:34 course record with a gun to tape 15:09 win whilst Carl Holden(16:10) finished quickly to hold off Sam Lesley(16:11) for second.
Fourteen year-old Summer Woodhead ran a superb personal best of 18:31 to cross the line in 23rd overall and top woman ahead of Mel Nicolle (19:42) and Lottie Smith (20:25).
94 runners completed the opening race in the series. Runners are asked to keep their number for the next series race.
