Did you see this plane at Ronaldsway on Sunday?

How else did Manx Radio report that Liz Corran won the Syd Quirk Half Marathon in the morning and still managed to take part in the New York Marathon in the afternoon? James Coulson did likewise.

Liz Corran - did she fly from Jurby perhaps as she is pictured a little closer to the former RAF base in this picture.

And going back to that Manx Radio report, it must have been correct because they had the first three men correctly reported.

The answer? They broadcast last year's result!

Thanks to Paul Jackson for picking up on this.

Roey Crellin pictured at Bride in the Parish Walk. Despite the growing popularity of the Clerical Medical sponsored event, the crowds were a bit thinner than when she ran through the streets of New York in her debut marathon on Sunday. (ML)

Meanwhile, Allan Corran reports that James Coulson, pictured above taking a break in the Carraghan Fell Race, was listed in the New York programme as living in Lazey, Isle of Man!

Ian Morrow - John Watterson reports that Ian Morrow did an astonishing 3.07. "Not bad for a fun runner" says John. I'm sure this was Ian's own description rather than the one John would attach to such a fine performance.

Steve Foulkes - Steve Taylor says that Steve Foulkes is IBM's local engineer who took part in the Peel to Douglas earlier this year. Steve is not a regular racer on the Isle of Man but trains regularly with Neil McGreggor and has competed in both London and New York on previous occasions.

David Doyle - the only Manx runner with a negative split according to the official times. In fact, if you use his actual time (deduct the time taken to cross the line) his splits are a remarkable 21 seconds apart.

Elizabeth Corran - after months of injury setbacks, she reversed her decision to withdraw and I'm sure she won't regret the decision. The day before she departed she told me she had managed to run 13 miles twice in training. Running them back to back on Sunday was obviously a big challenge but she made it.

James Coulson - another person to possibly suffer jet lag! James has not been on the Manx scene for very long but he has made a big impression and it was a fantastic achievement. Its a shame his friend Paul Curphey had to withdraw through injury.

Roey Crellin - Robbie Callister reports that Roey Crellin made her debut in the Big Apple event.  The Parish Walk hero finished a mere 1 second faster than John Quirk on actual time.

John Quirk - Isle of Man Newspaper's Chief Reporter, John is reported (by his own paper) to training over a long period for his marathon debut and raised a considerable sum for charity. And not a bad time for someone new to running.

WELL DONE EVERYONE
