RUN

71 finishers for the third year in a row. What were the chances of that?

(ML)

Paul Clarke finished second - just 6 days after running the Dublin Marathon. Picture by Paul Jackson.

Walk winner John Stubbs received plenty of applause on Sunday. He completed his first lap just seconds before the runners lined up and they gave him a tremendous applause. (PJ)

 

Mike Garrett first appeared on the athletics scene in 1996, the first year that his employers, Douglas Steam Saw Mill, sponsored the Syd Quirk Half Marathon. He entered that year but didn't take part due to injury. He finally made it today.(PJ)

 STEVE KELLY'S FIRST 10 YEARS IN THE SYD QUIRK

 

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.

Ian Gale was running away from the airport when Paul Jackson pictured him on his way to third position in the Syd Quirk Half Marathon.

Terry Bates and Graham Stigant represent the promoting club, Isle of Man Veterans AC, to good effect in the Douglas Saw Mills sponsored event.

The long road behind. Paul Jackson photographed Diane Turner on the Castletown bypass in the Douglas Steam Saw Mill Syd Quirk Half Marathon with a little over 2 of the 13 miles remaining.

Diane is a very determined runner and a regular competitor in the two half marathons promoted by the Isle of Man Veterans Athletic Club. Before the start of the run she told me she was just going to take it easy but if you had seen the look on her face during her sprint finish you would know she didn't have anything left.

The Doc. Laxey GP (certainly not Lazey GP) David Young is most competitive on the fells but he also regularly competes on the fells. Paul Jackson pictured him during the Syd Quirk Half Marathon.
