There was a fairly small turnout of athletes for the LCK sports, which were
held in often rather damp and cool conditions on Thursday, 26th June, writes Adrian Cowin. In the
5.5mile ‘marathon’ the small crowd watched a good run by Nigel Maddocks to win
the Jubilee Cup in just over 35 minutes. He was soon followed by Paul Rodgers, and
then Paul Curphey came across the line shortly afterwards to take third place.
It was good to see Janine Cubbon running nicely again to retain the First Lady
title, with a slightly faster time than last year. In the walking event, held
over the same course, the honours were taken by race walker Marie Jackson followed
by fellow Manx Harriers Club mates Rebecca Greatbatch and Adam Cowin.
