SEPTEMBER 22—Three times defending champion Khiry Creque fended off a late charge from Tarique Moses as he led an opening day record 254 participants o the line in Saturday opener of 19th annual Highland Spring College Classic Series on Tortola.

Creque had a winning time of 11 minutes 59.13 seconds to Moses’ 11:59.74 as the only two runners breaking 12 minutes. Samantha John—the BVI’s 800m National Record holder—opened with a time of 13:23.77 to win the women’s division.

“We had a tremendous start and bettered the mark of 215 from last year with 254,” noted race director Stephanie Russ Penn. “it was awesome and exciting to again see the number of persons that turned out for race one. There are a lot of things going on with the various divisions—some expected some unexpected.” Penn said Women’s winner John finished just ahead of 2012 co-champion Tarika Moses who missed last season won by Julain Potgieter who expecting and will miss this year’s series.

“It’s wide open what will happen in the women’s division,” Penn said. The race director added that Creque started with a slower time than the 11:25 he did last year so there’s lots of room for improvement if he and others are to threaten the 10:45.3 course record that has stood since 1997. In the Primary Schools Cross Country division, Penn noted that Althea Scatliffe Primary School Team I, is really strong. “I don’t know if they are beatable but we do have some other teams behind them—teams from Cedar School and Francis Lettsome Primary with two teams and Joyce Samuel—we’ll see what happens in the next race,” she said.

The Rotary Club of Tortola which has won the service clubs Cross Country division for the last nine years, had a formidable challenge from Interact Club. “Unfortunately, they were one member short but if they are able to get a full team, it will certainly be interesting to see what happens in that area,” Penn said. “We have good things going on and it was an exciting first race and we are certainly looking forward to the next one.”

The next race on Tortola is scheduled for Oct 4. The second race on Virgin Gorda is set for Saturday starting at 7:30 a.m. this race will be run in conjunction with the Virgin Gorda Cancer Society. Organizers are asking children to bring $1 and adults $5 with proceeds going to the Virgin Gorda Cancer Society.
