Tony Okell, pictured above by Murray Lambden in the Manx Mountain Marathon, is the favourite for the Isle of Man Bank Peel to Douglas tomorrow evening of the runners known to tackling the classic 11.25 mile race.  If you know of anyone who is taking part that may be a rival for Tony, then please let us all know via the forum.

There was a surprise during the early stages of the Ramsey Commissioners Park Runs on Friday night when 18 year old Robbie Lambden passed the eventual second placer, Mike Garrett,  and gave chase to Tony who went on to win by about a minute.  Robbie's very enthusiastic start inevitably didn't last and he had to settle for a time a mere 8 minutes faster than in the same race last year!

Mike Garrett, like Paul Curphey (number 29634 pictured about by Bridget Kaneen at 6 miles in the Flora London Marathon), will not be tackling the Isle of Man Bank Peel to Douglas so soon after the marathon and will instead turn out in the Northern 10 miles in three weeks time.

The week after the London Marathon, Manx Harriers enjoyed considerable success in the Jeff Ford Memorial walks meeting held at the Don Valley Stadium as part of the City of Sheffield Open athletics meeting.  Callum Taylor (pictured by Simon Latham) was the winner of the 3,000 metres for under 15s).
