Autumn Handicap, Run & Walk, at the NSC in Douglas on Thursday 14th October.

In calm but occasionally blustery conditions, 44 competitors turned out for the IOM Veteran Athletes Club Autumn Handicap 10km Run / 5km Walk. The line-up consisted of 27 runners and 17 walkers respectively.

First event of the night was the 5km walk which was won by Iris Neil with Renee Michalogiannis and Charlie Quirk taking 2nd and 3rd places. Lora Gleave was the fastest outright walker on the night in 30mins 17secs.

The 10km run contained a strong line up including David Bignell, Nhlanhla Nzama, Ian Goatman and Matt Callister. With some interesting battles going on in particularly Bignell and Nzama, Daniel Pownall took the honours in 1st place with Terry Bates and Kathy Lane finishing 2nd and 3rd respectively. David Bignell achieved the fastest time of the night in an excellent time of 34mins and 47secs.

The IOM Veteran Athletes Club would like to thank all of the volunteers who organised and took part on the night as well as the staff at the NSC. RESULTS: Here
