Last Thursday eveningís Foxdale 6 run & walk hosted by Manx Harriers incorporated round 4 of the Grand Prix of running series. Simon Skillicorn of Manx Fell Runners dominated the race and his talents proved to be well suited to the demands of this 6 mile circuit especially on the punishing long climb from The Hope cross roads. The Isle of Man Fell running champion elect recorded his second win of the week holding off a determined Nigel Armstrong from Manx Harriers who made a confident and welcome return to the road running scene. Ben Scott of Western AC was the first of the Grand Prix entrants to finish and he took 3rd place to all but secure victory in 5 race series. It was good to see the senior class athletes filling the top 3 places for a change, although the new Isle of Man Marathon champion and first veteran finisher Murray Lambden pushed them all the way to the finish, and a clear minute ahead of the close battle behind between Northern ACís Kevin Vondy and Steve Partington. First lady finisher was the improving Diane Shimmin from the host club just ahead of new local dentist and impressive newcomer Nayra Noble who finished strongly to overhaul 1st lady veteran finisher Bridget Kaneen in the latter stages. With just 4 walkers lining up at the start, it was good to see Peter Kaneen returning from injury and recording an impressive sub 50 minute time over this testing circuit for racewalkers. Runner up was Adrian Cowin with Andrew Boardman & David Capelan also recording respectable times. Thanks go to Grand Prix organiser Enid Watson and to all the marshals and officials who helped on the night
