Robles, Oram Place First in the 37th Annual Carnival Mile

St. Thomas Association of Roadrunners

Riley Oram’s strong first place finish for women was challenged by Jenny Martin and Charlotte Lenten in the St. Thomas Association of Roadrunners’ (STAR) 37th Annual Carnival Mile. For the men (Shane DeGannes and Maison van Heurck choosing to run with their families), middle-distance champion and 2017 winner Juan Robles of St. Croix finished unchallenged almost a minute ahead of a pair of fleet teenagers, Jonathan Gomez and Tyfarri Lee.

Almost 70 people raced, jogged or walked a one-mile stretch along the parade route for the 37th Annual Carnival Mile, early, Saturday, May 4, before the Carnival Parade. Conducted every year since 1983 by the St. Thomas Association of Roadrunners (STAR), the race has been one of its most joyful events. Not everyone raced; some walked and talked; for several groups it was a family affair.

First place awards in six age-groups were taken by Devin DeGannnes, Aiden Stapleton, Jonathan Gomez, Deja Marie Simon, Clemon Lewis, Vernise Monsanto, Sander Lenten, Charlotte Lenten, Eric Oram, Jenny Martin, Bill McConnell, Kersten McConnell, Mike Betancourt and Cynthia Howell. All participants received Carnival Mile 2019 T-shirts.

STAR’s next event will be the 2019 Olympic Day Run on June 30. Details will be announced. STAR thanks the volunteers who made it possible to put on this race and all of the events STAR conducts for benefit of the community.
