Oshane Archibald won the annual Old Harbour Bay 5K Road Race on New Year’s day, while denying runner-up Kirk Brown of a fourth straight win.

The traditional event, sponsored again by Evergrow Garden Garden Centre, saw 48 registered runners completing the journey that started from Old Harbour town.

Archibald, coming off a successful 2017 season, continued his rich form, topping the field in 14 minutes, 42.47 seconds, well clear of Brown, who stopped the clock in 14:47.56.

Lenford Adams finished third in 14:48.84 in one of the lowest turnout in terms of registered competitors.

Davian Gray was the highest placed high school runner, ending fifth overall in a time of 15:30.69 ahead of Dwayne Moore (16:21.24) and Milton Forbes (16:23.66) who were sixth and seventh respectively.

Local resident Winston Mollison came seventh in the male 40-59 category and 21st overall in a time of 19:55.26. Veteran Andrew Gutzmore, who came eighth, won that category in 16:31.96.

Former female champion Chris-Ann Lewis, who came second last year, regained the title she won in 2015, topping her field in 19:54.55.

Another former champion Karlene Blagrove, who now competes among the 40-59 age group, was second to Lewis in 21:22.95, while Deandra Harris, a little girl under 13 years old, was the third best placed female finishing 31st overall in 26:37.43.
