The Stubbington 10km is a very popular race, and with the 1200 limit reached in mid-November, only a small contingent from West Wight Road Runners managed to beat the deadline and participate in the race. Ian Jolliffe, in his first race as an over-60, was delighted to dip under 40 minutes (39.39) for the distance for the first time in nearly two years and was rewarded with 2nd place in that age category. Madeline Goodman was also among the prizewinners, picking up 3rd place in the over-55 category with 51.08. Had there been a separate over-60 category for women, she would have taken first place. Hilary Searle, with 45.30, was fifth in the over-45 category, and the ‘youngster’ of the contingent, Paul Scivier, was 202nd overall in the race with 43.49.
