FORT-TO-FORT ROAD RACE A SUCCESS

Although less competitive than in the past several years, the annual Fort-To-Fort Relay Road Race drew six teams of runners covering four, four-mile segments from Fort Frederik in Frederiksted to Fort Christianvaern in Christiansted.
The V.I. Pace Runners team consisting of Marlon Williams, George Cannon and Wallace Williams took the first place honors with a time of 1 hour 37 minutes and 55 seconds, just nine seconds off last year's time.
Marlon Williams became the super runner for the team this year as he ran the first and third legs. He was replacing his son Sheldon who is off to college for his freshman year. Marlon also picked up the slack for yet another team by running its fourth leg.
Second place went to The Untouchables team consisting of Kent Bradbury, Rey
Ruiz, Jeremy Laurent and Luke Frederick with a time of 1:55.05.
Third place went to The Caribbean Health and Racquet Club team with Jay Wiltshire, Anselm Richards, Teddy Seymour and Marlon Williams in 1:57.11.
Fourth place went to The West End Striders with Shelly Anderson, Will Franks
and Kevin Cummins in 1:57.43.
The first place female team and fifth team overall was Starship Enterprise
with Denise Blanchette, Elena Shaubah, Sue Brown and Theresa Harper in
2:06.18.
The second place female team was The Tortoise with Cathy Prince, Alicia
Lewit, Jo Shim and Earthla Augustin in 2:19.33.
The race was organized by V.I. Pace Runners. For more information call
