Phil Maguire was the winner of a 4 lap, 5.1 mile muddy cross-country race at Noirmont on Sunday morning. In a time of 30 mins 47 secs the youngster took the Jersey Spartan event by a narrow 4 second margin from 50 year old Phil Ahier in second place in 30-51, whose gutsy effort won him the run-of-the-day award. Third place went to another super-vet, Nick Gorrod who posted a time of 31-53.
Duathlete Katie Thompson was a clear winner of the women’s event, first home in 34-24. Sylvia Thompson, back from injury was second in 38-34 and there was a promising performance from Kieranne Grimshaw who after a long absence claimed third place in 39-13.
The next JSAC event is a 5km evening race at West Park starting at 6.30pm on Tuesday 10th March.
