Handicapper’s delight – barely a minute separated the top five teams. You can watch the finish below.
Thanks to Manx Harriers organising committee for giving up so much time to put the event on and for the officials on the day who braved the conditions, which may have been ideal for running, but were still cold for a three and a half stint. Photo of Elizabeth and Gordon Corran.
Dave Newton (above), who brought his team home in fifth place in the SCS Relay on Boxing Day, has been treating (?) spectators to that grimace for more than 40 years. In fact, he was the very first person to complete a section of the Boxing Day Relay, in its former guise as the Millennium Way Relay, in 1979. You can read the full press report below.
Dave is pictured below (beneath the large arrow) on the start line of the 1979 Bradda Fell Race. Only an odd few people from that photo are still competing today!
